1 Voyager Passport Targeted Reading Intervention for Students in Grades K-6 Reading results. Imagine the possibilities.

2 You can make a diff The Reality of Illiteracy According to recent statistics, the average reading score of fourth-graders in America has not significantly improved in more than a decade. Although basal reading programs are designed to teach fundamental literacy skills, percent of elementary school students are continually left behind because they do not master these skills through their core curriculum. What s more, average reading scores for minority and economically disadvantaged students remain consistently lower than those of their peers. A Three-Step Solution Voyager Passport TM is a patented, data-driven reading intervention program designed to move struggling readers to grade level. It fits into and strengthens all major reading programs by providing minutes of daily, targeted skill development that follows a scope and sequence of instruction. The program provides a proven three-step solution for effective intervention: 1Immediately identifies struggling readers 2Intervenes and moves them to grade level 3Monitors progress until intervention is no longer needed

3 3 erence with research-based reading intervention proven to help students succeed Voyager Passport is the only reading intervention program in America patented for its method and system of preventing illiteracy.

4 Levels A,B,Cand D Scientifically Proven Instruction Unlike many other intervention programs, Voyager Passport does not simply deliver more of the core, repeating lessons that students have failed to successfully learn in the past. Instead, Voyager Passport provides explicit, systematic instruction to build essential reading skills and accelerate struggling students to grade level. Early Intervention for Young Learners Early intervention focuses on building fundamental reading skills through systematic, explicit instruction. Passport levels A, B, C and D target the five essential components of reading as defined in No Child Left Behind. Daily minute lessons emphasize word study and vocabulary to ensure students have a firm foundation for future reading success. The combined wholegroup and small-group format includes teacher-directed instruction as well as the opportunity for students to learn and practice reading and writing skills with their peers during group activities. Word Study Letter-sound picture cards lay the foundation Decodable text builds confidence for early readers Word reading and spelling build automaticity Assessment checkpoints ensure skill mastery Vocabulary (Levels A and B) 10-minute read-alouds introduce new words Multiple exposures to vocabulary foster word usage in students language Rich content engages readers and builds on prior knowledge Daily passages empower students to read for understanding 4

5 5 Levels E, F and G Moving Beyond the Fundamentals When students fail to acquire basic literacy skills in the early grades, they continue to fall further behind as their core reading program moves on to more advanced material. Passport levels E, F and G deliver minutes of intensive, sequenced daily instruction with engaging, age-appropriate materials for older students. Students learn to read a variety of text formats and develop the ability to comprehend complex text in major content areas. Longer passages are similar to those on high-stakes assessment texts, and lessons include weekly practice in testtaking strategies. Fluency (Levels C-G) Fast Read word cards set the pace One-minute oral practice readings improve speed and accuracy Informational text builds content knowledge Functional text adds a practical component Long passages increase endurance Vocabulary and Comprehension Critical comprehension strategies promote active reading Graphic organizers help build comprehension Engaging content keeps students motivated Frequent review and assessment prepares students for standardized tests

6 6 Progress Monitoring Benchmark Assessments Students using Voyager Passport are tested at the start of the program, mid-year, and at year-end using the Vital Indicators of Progress (VIP ). This set of simple and highly-predictive measurement tools is completely equivalent to the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) and provides teachers the means to pinpoint each student s exact level of reading ability. 1The 2Mid-term 3Year-end first benchmark assessment is used to determine the student s placement in the program. assessments allow teachers to track student progress and adjust instruction where needed. benchmarks show teachers and administrators each student s learning growth. Instructions for administering each of the benchmarks are included in the VIP Teacher s Guide. Ongoing Progress Monitoring Regular progress monitoring ensures that every student stays on track for reading success. Progress monitoring assessments generally occur twice between each benchmark, enabling teachers to gauge student learning and adjust instruction, if necessary. Teachers also receive a set of Student Record Books, which contain record sheets to evaluate students regularly.

7 Simplified Reporting Web-based Data Management and Reporting System Every teacher, principal, and district leader can access reports on the reading progress of students and the status of implementation through the VIP online data management system. These reports provide specific information and direction as to which children are at risk for reading difficulty and need additional support. Teachers can also access in-depth information on students skills and get instructional recommendations. Benefits of the VIP Data Management System: Student assessment levels clearly show whether students are making adequate progress or need more support to achieve grade-level reading outcomes Teachers have access to immediate feedback on student assessments and online instructional recommendations for individual students Principals have an action plan for supporting each classroom Dynamic parent reports in English or Spanish let parents monitor their child s reading progress and download recommendations for at-home practice Teachers Corner and Coaches Corner sections offer additional resources and important tools and communications for the reading coach or teacher Automated system check allows teachers to fix computer deficiencies with ease and connect with customer support if additional assistance is required The online system enables district administrators to access real-time data at the student, classroom, school, and district level to inform decisionmaking. Customized district-wide reports facilitate fidelity checks. 7

10 10 Teacher Training Comprehensive Professional Development Well-trained teachers are the most critical element of any reading program. Voyager Passport s professional development component provides teachers the skills they need to bring struggling readers to grade level. In addition, middle school teachers learn the tools and techniques to teach fundamental reading skills in a way that is both engaging and motivating for older students. The Tools to Succeed Teachers and paraprofessionals are prepared to teach intervention effectively through classroom demonstrations, explanation of key reading strategies, and practice on assessments. Through interactive tutorials, teachers learn to: Deliver scientifically based intervention lessons Use explicit, systematic instructional models to teach reading Administer, score, and record VIP measures Administer regular progress monitoring for students District and school coaches are prepared to support the implementation of Voyager Passport by: Providing school-based training for instructional personnel Developing strategies for a successful launch Facilitating the administration and collection of VIP data Applying coaching strategies to ensure student success Using onsite and online resources to provide ongoing support

11 The professional development component of Voyager Passport is aligned with Reading First research-based practices for teacher training, to ensure all teachers are highly-qualified and equipped to succeed. 11

12 Voyager Passport D A Record of Success The Voyager Passport Reading Invention System has undergone numerous rigorous, systematic and objective evaluations, and the results are consistent: Voyager Passport dramatically accelerates the performance of students who struggle with learning to read. Third Grade Passport RCT A Dramatic Impact Students who are eligible for Voyager Passport reading intervention begin the program reading substantially fewer words than their grade-level peers. The charts shown here represent results of a national sample of students using Voyager Passport. They illustrate how the program significantly accelerated their weekly reading growth to wellabove the goal in just 13 weeks. Without Voyager Passport, these students would continue reading at the same rate, causing them to fall further behind. GOAL Grade Level Without intervention Expected gain with continued intervention Weekly Words Per Minute Gain At the continued accelerated rate, these third-graders will hit gradelevel goal in fourth grade. Voyager Passport Level D Third Grade Accelerated Growth N=1,150 GOAL: 1 * * Based on DIBELS goals. Before Passport After 13 weeks of Passport Third-grade students are expected to gain 1 word per minute (wpm) each week, based on DIBELS TM. Passport students tripled their reading growth to 2.1 wpm. 12

13 13 elivers Proven Results Voyager Passport is currently being used by nearly 500 districts nationwide to provide targeted reading intervention to elementary and middle school students. Teachers and district leaders have witnessed remarkable improvement in reading scores, including those of students in Special Ed and ELL programs, and have achieved improved AYP status by providing early, effective intervention. Fourth Grade Passport RCT Fifth Grade Passport RCT At the continued accelerated rate, these fourth-graders will hit gradelevel goal in fifth grade. At the continued accelerated rate, these fifth-graders will hit gradelevel goal in sixth grade.
