Corrective Reading, Decoding A – Student Workbook Corrective Reading Decoding is a research-proven solution for students who struggle with frequent word identification errors, add and omit words, confuse high-frequency words, or read at a laboriously slow rate. Benefits: Students learn the skills and concepts necessary to progress from reading significantly below grade level to reading at or above a seventh grade level. Tightly sequenced lessons provide the structure and practice at risk students need to master high-priority skills. Stories written for the program provide a gradual progression in skill development that discourages guessing and overcomes the error patterns typically observed with problem readers. Daily fluency practice with immediate feedback helps students read fluently, accurately, and with expression. Comprehension activities include short-response and open-ended questions to ensure understanding.
