work on a reading program tailored to their INVIDIDUAL needs while improving fluency (reading rate), comprehension, vocabulary, phonemic awareness and phonics

use a computer to work on the reading program at least 2 times a week for 45 minutes per session (complete 40 Guided Readings™)

receive motivation & positive reinforcement from their assigned instructor

receive monthly progress reports

increase their reading rate at least 50% from his or her starting rate
