Bad News, Good News

Prices Increase but Still Low

The bad news is that we are going to increase our prices on June 1, 2017.  The good news is that the increases are relatively small (about 5% on average, the first price hike in 2 years), and, more importantly, the Stevenson Program is still very inexpensive when compared to any of the other methods specifically designed to help struggling readers.  For a copy of our order form with the prices that are effective on June 1, 2017, click here.  (We will automatically fill any purchase order dated before June 1 with the prices now in effect.)

Fun with Layer Cake Words

A New Twist on an Old Favorite

We all know the game Twister.  A friend of ours in Dayton, OH recently created a version of the game for her Stevenson students using a couple of cheap shower curtains and a giant drawing of a layer cake.  You can see a picture of it on our website under the heading “Teaching Resources” (or click here).  You can also see this and other wonderful classroom activities on our Facebook share page (click here).

Starting Stevenson in the Spring

Even now, with testing season underway and the end of the year around the corner, there is still time to start Stevenson in your classrooms. You will be surprised.

At this point in the school year, you are keenly aware of your struggling learners and their issues. If you can find 30 minutes in your day to work with these students, simply open the manual, tell them you are learning something new, and they have been chosen to help you. Follow the manual, read the parts to the students as directed and watch their responses. Don't over-think it or worry about lesson planning, just give it a try! We are here to help answer any questions you might have – 800-343-1211 or info@stevensonlearning.com.

Within a few weeks you will feel a difference in how your students respond.  Even if assessments do not show progress in such a short time, that feeling you will notice in your students is the beginning of important growth.  For some students, that feeling of really grasping reading material will give them hope that they have lost.

New Laws - ESSA Takes Over for NCLB

 

Do you know your ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act)?  Or do you not even want to know what the latest from Washington is?  Either way, some important educational practices are going to change.  ESSA replaces

Testing Season

 

Spring is testing season in public schools, and seldom do either teachers or students enjoy the process. However, since the process is out of our hands right now, let us focus on the possibilities ahead and not the

Spring and Reading Instruction

 

Spring and hope go well together, as many writers have observed.  So it seems appropriate to say a few words that might help lift the spirits of educators out there working with struggling readers:  Whatever difficulties you or your students are experiencing, there is hope.
