Get to Know Quick Reads!

November 28, 2017 10:00 AM EST - November 28, 2017 11:30 PM EST

Join me to learn about Quick Reads! Quick Reads meets the strong evidence requirement for ESSA funding.

Research shows that post high school life demands reading of increasingly complex text. To prepare our students to meet this demand, they need to become highly automatic, or fluent, with reading that involves critical concepts and vocabulary. QuickReads does just that — based on Dr. Elfrieda H. Hiebert’s research, this classroom-validated program systematically increases students’ automaticity with high-leverage words and at the same time develops their knowledge base with informational text. Through a unique combination of text and consistent instructional routine, QuickReads results in improved reading proficiency for students at all ability levels.


  • Builds capacity for reading increasingly complex text quickly and systematically with a unique, research-based text model. 
  • Creates strong readers with a proven, consistent instructional routine. 
  • Deepens knowledge of important nonfiction topics through time with accessible informational text.
