Winners were selected based on schools who substantially improved their reading skills using Read Naturally’s Read Live program in the 2019-2020 school year. Corona Foothills Middle School is receiving a $500 Read Naturally Gift Certificate.

Winning schools demonstrated:

  • The school’s commitment to using Read Live with fidelity.
  • Students’ growth in reading proficiency.
  • Positive changes in student attitudes and motivation.

Corona Foothills Middle School is part of the Vail, AZ school district which has been using Read Live since 2014. Corona Foothills Middle School has made Read Live a daily fixture in their curriculum. They have been able to get those hard to please middle school students excited about meeting their word correct per minute (wcpm) goal. Teacher Sarah Hammer uses the built-in reports to communicate progress to parents and identify individual student needs.  Student progress in Read Live translated to increased scores in district formative assessment.

The Read Live program provides content for grade 1 through adult and is used with students in need of reading support, including English language learners, special education students, and Title I students. Students using Read Live work mostly independently by reading high-interest, nonfiction stories and completing several activities. The research-based curriculum is designed to build fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and phonics skills.
