Success for All makes reading the cornerstone of the curriculum. For children to succeed in school, they must be reading on grade level by the end of the third grade and keep building reading skills through secondary school. They also need effective teachers, so SFA includes intensive professional development, ongoing coaching support, and data tools to give teachers feedback on how students are learning and where they need additional instruction or extra help. SFA involves the whole community in implementing effective instruction that
is based on the best research on what works.
Success for All makes learning fun and engaging for kids and helps teachers become knowledgeable, skilled instructional leaders.
Is Success for All a one-size-fits-all program?
Absolutely not! Success for All adapts to the needs of all learners in all kinds of schools. SFA includes proven strategies for English learners, response-to-intervention strategies with computer-assisted tutoring to help struggling students, and accommodations for urban and rural schools to meet their own specific needs. It provides a solid structure for effective instruction, while allowing teachers to use their knowledge and skills to deliver a dynamic and engaging learning program. There are even lessons adapted for whiteboard technology and multimedia activities with humorous puppets and appealing actors to help build students’ skills.
