The Utah Valley University K-12 Reading Program has opened early, reduced rates, and converted all classes to a live online format, to help parents and schools maintain student education during these unusual times.

UVU's live, teacher-led online classes are available now and throughout the summer, for Pre-K through 12th grade students. 

The curriculum is high caliber and has been taught in a live, online format for 5 years already with over 50,000 school-age students.  The classes are led by highly-trained teachers with many years’ experience teaching effectively in online classrooms.  Skills taught include:

 

  • Early Elementary: letter recognition, phonemic awareness, sight words, phonics
  • Mid-to-Late Elementary: fluency, phonics, long-word decoding, comprehension, textbook reading, writing
  • Middle and High School: doubling reading speed, comprehension, writing, notetaking, test preparation, textbook strategies

 Due to the unfolding health crisis our ability to get the word out to parents has been greatly diminished.  Many parents are seeking solutions to keep their children productively engaged and ready to hit the ground running when in-person school resumes.  If you have trouble opening the attachment (click next at the top of this post) please visit the website at https://uvu.readingclasses.org/.
