The Third Quest • Teaching and Training Seminar
Presented by Marilyn Sprick, Lead Author of The Third Quest
This training is for individual teachers and leadership teams responsible for delivering reading intervention in middle and high school(grades 5 through 12).
This comprehensive versus targeted reading program is powerful for students who need a strong teacher-directed program in order to generalize stronger reading skills to other classes.
Learn how to teach and train others to deliver this effective intervention with fidelity and high success.

Positive Comments From Teachers Using The Third Quest
Increased scores—students feel measured growth and are transferring to content classes.
Even my eighth-grade students are so engaged—especially with the Word Study.
My students now LOVE to read out loud, have gained confidence in reading, and are proud to let others know when their oral reading fluency scores (are high). Their comprehension and writing summaries have greatly improved. Their stamina is up—even if they get glazed eyes toward the end (of a lesson). They have developed perseverance. Oh, and they love using the new vocabulary words they have learned. I can’t say enough good things about this program.
