Reading Intervention for EARLY SUCCESS is a research-based reading intervention program for students in grades 1and 2 who need extra support to become proficient, grade-level readers. It is a small group model (5-7 students) that provides 30 minutes of daily instruction that is in addition to the core reading/language arts program. The daily lesson plan provides explicit, direct instruction in a three part lesson plan: Rereading for Fluency, Reading the Books of the Week and Working with Words/Writing Sentences.

EARLY SUCCESS is based on 12 years of classroom research (Early Intervention in Reading or EIR®) conducted by Dr. Barbara Taylor of the University of Minnesota. EARLY SUCCESS develops reading fluency within a meaning based context. It is aligned with the 5 critical areas of reading instruction as outlined in the Reading First criteria of the No Child Left Behind Legislation.

An important part of the EIR research was the professional development course that the teachers participated in. This same training and other training options are available on the Professional Development Web site.
