Reading Center

Students accessing reading comprehension support at Har-Bur Middle school primarily receive instruction using the Leveled Literacy Intervention program, or LLI. See below for a brief description of this program from the Heinemann website.

The Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention System (LLI) is an intensive, small-group, supplementary literacy intervention for students who find reading and writing difficult. The goal of LLI is to lift the literacy achievement of students who are not achieving grade-level expectations in reading. The LLI systems are designed to:

  • Advance the literacy learning of students not meeting grade-level expectations in reading
  • Deepen and expand comprehension with close reading
  • Elevate the expertise of teachers
  • Increase reading volume by engaging students in large amounts of successful daily reading
  • Increase student engagement with books that build knowledge
  • Intervene with small groups of struggling readers to maximize growth
  • Meet the needs of struggling readers
  • Monitor student progress.

Students may receive reading comprehension support through our reading center three to six days of our six day schedule rotation cycle.
