All Green on the Texas Resource Review

The TRR List of Compliant Phonics Programs (formerly The Commissioner’s List of Recommended Phonics Programs) verifies Reading Horizons Discovery® as fully compliant for all grade levels K–3 and aligns with 100 percent of Phonics-Related Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Read the Quality Reviews:

      The HB 3 Reading Academies are helping educators learn about the science of reading throughout Texas. We know you and your colleagues are eager to put those skills into practice to help your students make gains in reading proficiency. Reading Horizons equips you with a science-based phonics program and closes the gaps between knowledge and practice, so the benefits of the Reading Academies impact students. It’s simple for teachers and effective for students.

      Here’s how to get started:

      1. Schedule a Call with your Texas Reading Horizons representative.
      2. Get a personalized plan for your schools.
      3. Celebrate reading breakthroughs!

      Take off.

      Simply log in and pick up where you left off with a screen that shows everything you need to prep and teach the next whole-class lesson. You’ll see a lesson summary, a script for inspiration (or to read word-for-word), a video that models teaching, and coordinating student slides that, with a tap, display on your SmartBoard or TV.

      Take notice.

      As you pick up on issues while teaching (such as problems with pronunciation, decoding, etc.), tap students’ names on your screen to use quick, color-coded tracking. Your tagging automatically groups students based on their needs so you can easily divide the class for center work.

      Take action.

      Each student’s device automatically syncs with coordinating gamified assessment and practice,  reinforcing the day’s skill and checking progress. Once they’ve finished the activity, you can view what percentage of students are at or above level, who needs intervention, and which instructional strategies are the best next step.

      Case Study

      Tyler Independent School District Research Study

      This rigorous study compared impacts between students whose teachers implemented Reading Horizons Discovery® and those whose teachers did not implement the program during the 2021–2022 school year. Both implementation integrity and student outcomes were measured by the Reading Horizons Implementation Integrity Rubric and the DIBELS 8 assessment, respectively. Students receiving Reading Horizons Discovery® instruction demonstrated a positive effect size of .31, a substantively important positive effect, according to What Works Clearinghouse Evidence Standards.

      With exposure to the Reading Horizons method, average student growth was more than double that of students without exposure.

      After our first group of teachers completed the Texas Reading Academies, our district began looking for a systematic and explicit program for teaching phonics. We quickly discovered that Reading Horizons was the answer. It has given us common language and resources across grade levels that have positively affected student performance in grades K–3. Our teachers feel more confident and supported in their instruction and find the lessons and routines easy to implement and extremely effective in reaching the varying needs of their students.

      The next generation of foundational literacy

      Reading Horizons Discovery

      You don’t have to cross your fingers and hope for the best. With leading real-time data, you can celebrate reading success district-wide.

      After only using Reading Horizons for a few months, our teachers are already seeing a difference in students’ application of phonics rules. Students are able to take the concept they are studying in Reading Horizons and apply it in their reading and writing in ways they have not been able to in the past.”

      — Taylor Clark, District Coordinator of Curriculum at Spring Hill ISD

      My students are constantly pointing out the skills and sounds that we practice with Reading Horizons® in other content areas. I feel like it’s really ‘sticking!’

      — Sarah Fremont, Teacher at Texas City ISD

      I have students with Dyslexia that are making a lot of progress. They have improved their Lexile levels by more than 200L!

      Overcome student learning gaps with assessment-driven explicit phonics instruction based on the science of reading.

      Foundational Literacy for Older Students: Catching Up. Keeping Up. Moving Ahead.

      Nearly 66% of fourth- and eighth-grade learners perform below proficient achievement levels in reading. For students grades 4 and beyond who struggle with reading, the path ahead can be difficult and discouraging. For striving readers, newcomers, and students with special needs, we can do more and do it better. And that’s the focus of this edWebinar.

      For many teachers, the science of reading feels overwhelming because it’s so… different. As you teach, it’s hard to know for sure if you’re getting it “right.”

      You shouldn’t have to figure it out on your own. When you join The Science of Reading Collective, you won’t have to. It’s free to join!
