Reading Enhancement for Advancing Development (READ)
What is READ
USAID's flagship READ Project is a 4 year collaboration with Save the Children International to improve early grade reading competence. Learning to read affects all aspects of children's education. By ensuring a strong foundation at the beginning of school, the expectation is that fewer children will repeat grades or drop out in the primary circle. A higher proportion will hopefully complete school with solid primary school skills- such as literacy- which are critical in today's world.
READ's Overall Objective
Increased reading competencies among grade 1-3 students in READ- supported schools in the lelected districts.
Reading skill develops through five inter-relatd components. READ systematically addresses all 5:
- Letter knoledge
- Phonemic awareness
- Reading Fluency
- Improved evidence-based, interactive early grade literacy instruction in grades 1-3
- Increased use of early grade (1-3) reading assesment.
- Expanded provision and use of relevant and age-appropriate suplementary materials.
- Strengthened community support for early grade literacy.
