Iowa School District Uses Data-Based Reading Program

The Quad-City (IA) Times (4/29, Martens) reports all the schools in Bettendorf, Iowa, "are required to have a data-based reading program as part of the district's efforts to comply with the statewide Response to Intervention initiative." This "allows teachers to address the specific needs of identify patterns of skills students as a group are lacking and to adjust the curriculum at lower grade levels to address the issue." Two of the schools divide the children into small groups based on their ability and give them specialized instruction.
