Fundations Ready to Rise® Program Workshop
The Fundations Ready to Rise® program is designed to prepare students for success with foundational skills. It is intended to be used with students in the preceding summer or beginning of the school year. With a laser focus to stress the most important skills for success going forward, the content has been purposefully selected and structured to ready students for new learning they will encounter in the upcoming grade. The Ready to Rise Workshop provides the necessary background and guidance for teachers to implement the program. It includes a review of the materials and outlines program implementation, including the structure of the daily lesson plan and program components, Word Study, Transcription Skills, and Application/Fluency. Activities within the three components are reviewed and practiced. Pre- and Posttest Assessments are discussed.

- Understand the program background and need for accelerated learning.
