Reading In Motion
Founded over 30 years ago, Reading In Motion is a results-driven literacy organization that gets students reading at grade level or above within the first years of school, especially those students whose environment or circumstances put them in greater need of support. It offers an engaging, innovative literacy model, delivered in both Spanish and English, that collaborates with teachers to measurably improve students’ reading and build crucial reading skills early to start students on the path for a lifetime of successful learning.
Reading In Motion leverages its resources by training classroom teachers on its curriculum, which incorporates music- and drama-based elements in small group and whole class sessions. These teachers deliver the curriculum daily, and Reading In Motion provides them with coaching, materials, and data on student progress, so that they are better able to tailor instruction and attention to students’ individual needs.
Reading In Motion is currently in over 200 Chicago-area classrooms and has helped more than 50,000 students since it was founded in 1983.
