READWS is reaching, teaching and advocating for struggling readers in our community who are at an economic disadvantage. We train volunteer tutors, educators and parents to use the evidence-informed best practices of a multi-sensory structured literacy approach.
The READWS focus areas are:
* Augustine Literacy Project tutoring program (1st-12th grade)
* Educator Training
* Parent Education
* Free Resources and Advocacy
The Augustine Literacy Tutoring Program trains and supports volunteer tutors who provide free, long term, 1-to-1 instruction using the Orton-Gillingham approach and Wilson Reading System materials. Lessons include the five essential components of research-based reading instruction in phonemic awareness, phonics. vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. We serve low-income children and teens in the Winston-Salem area.
Parent Education READING PARTIES: Volunteers are needed to help us provide 2-hour READING PARTIES for parents and their children where they will receive instruction and materials to help their children at home.
