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, designed in both Spanish and English, that collaborates with teachers to measura...bly 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 individual and small group sessions. These teachers deliver the curriculum daily, and Reading In Motion provides them with coaching, materials and monthly data on student progress so that they are better able to tailor instruction and attention to students’ individual needs.
Reading In Motion consistently drives significant gains in literacy for students, with 82% of Reading In Motion students reading at grade level, compared to 61% of Chicago Public Schools students in 2015-2016.
Halfway to its ambitious goal of serving 10,000 students per year by 2019, Reading In Motion currently has school partnerships with 26 schools in Chicago. We opened our first new site in Las Vegas with 4 schools in the 2017-2018 school year.
