Sopris Learning Releases REWARDS® Intermediate Second Edition, The Newest Version Of The Research-Validated Intervention Reading Program For Grades 4-6

DALLAS, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sopris Learning, a business unit of Cambium Learning ® Group [NASDAQ: ABCD], a leading educational solutions and services company committed to helping all students reach their full potential by providing evidence-based solutions and services, announced today the release of REWARDS Intermediate Second Edition.  An acronym for Reading Excellence: Word Attack and Rate Development Strategies, REWARDS  is a specialized reading and writing program designed to teach intermediate students a flexible strategy for decoding long words and increasing oral and silent reading fluency. Developed by authors Anita L. Archer, Ph.D., Mary M. Gleason, Ph.D., and Vicky Vachon, Ph.D., REWARDS is grounded in extensive research and a classroom-tested strategy.

An update and expanded revision of the popular six-week intensive course, REWARDS Intermediate Second Edition is an explicit, systematic, research-validated reading intervention program, which empowers students with an adaptable, highly effective strategy for decoding multisyllabic words frequently found in content-area texts.  Increasing oral and silent reading rates and expanding student knowledge of general academic and domain-specific vocabulary, REWARDS Intermediate Second Edition produces measurable results in approximately six weeks—improving reading skills, comprehension and confidence. 

Aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for all Foundational Skills in grades 4 and 5, plus key standards for Language and Reading Informational Text, REWARDS Intermediate Second Edition has been used successfully in a wide range of settings, including general education classes (Response to Intervention, RTI, Tier 1—core instruction), intervention classes (RTI, Tier 2 and Tier 3), and summer school and after school programs.

"We are excited to release REWARDS Intermediate Second Edition in time for fall implementation," said George Logue, president of Voyager Learning and Sopris Learning. "We are confident this enhanced reading intervention will serve as a powerful new addition to the Sopris Learning portfolio that will help build reading success for all students."

Results reported in the REWARDS Research Base indicate that the program provides students with essential decoding preskills, a highly generalizable strategy for reading longer words—and the practice necessary to read words, sentences, and passages in various subject areas successfully and independently.
