The RAVE-O Program

 

Evidence-based instruction to build fluency and comprehension skills among struggling readers including those with dyslexia.

RAVE-O Offers Strategic Instruction in

Fluency and Comprehension

 

RAVE-O (Retrieval, Automaticity, Vocabulary, Engagement - Orthography) is the first comprehensive research and evidence-based approach to building reading fluency struggling 2nd - 4th graders.

By the completion of the course, participants will be prepared to teach RAVE-O both in-person and online. The program goes beyond repeated reading to help students develop their automaticity in all aspects of word knowledge, integrating phonics, vocabulary, parts of speech, and morphology. 

 

RAVE-O is the only known structured literacy approach for students with Rapid Automatized Naming (RAN) weaknesses, and now has a virtual version of the curriculum for remote instruction.

RAVE-O Virtual offers a curriculum that is designed for both LIVE LESSONS (via Google classroom) and ASYNCHRONOUS ACTIVITIES (via Seesaw). Live Lessons are scripted and easy to deliver, while the asynchronous or self-guided activities have recorded directions that facilitate independent work. 

UPCOMING WORKSHOP

Our hybrid training workshops provides participants with an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the program and its components through self-guided coursework (6 hours) and attend a live virtual workshop (6 hours) to practice instructional routines. 

Next Workshop: July 11th

Discounts are available for enrollment of groups of 3+ participants please email [email protected] for more information.

Struggling Readers and Students with Dyslexia
The efficacy of the RAVE-O has been evaluated with diverse groups of students, and demonstrates significant growth among students with dyslexia in decoding, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension.
The program is designed for students in 2nd - 4th grade who are reading below grade level.
RAVE-O Virtual
Each unit contains 3 live lessons and 3 sets of self-guided student activities. All lessons can be delivered remotely or in-person. Live lessons are 35 mins. and available for delivery via Google slides. Self-guided activities are 15 mins. and available for Seesaw.
Engaging Literacy Instruction
The RAVE-O curriculum was developed to appeal to children's imagination and sense of whimsy. Students are tasked with serving as "Word Detectives," and throughout the program encounter RAVE-O Town characters who teach them phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension strategies.
