Instruction Based on Continuous Assessment
initial evaluation, we design an intervention plan to meet each students
situation. Our master instructors and graduate students (experienced teachers
completing Wisconsin Certification in reading teaching) carry out that plan in
individual sessions. Progress is continually evaluated. We do not hesitate to
modify a lesson if a student’s progress indicates the need.
