TRI Growth

Through professional development and online coaching, Targeted Reading Instruction (TRI) helps teachers refine their instructional practice as they work one-on-one with a beginning reader. Teachers adapt TRI activities to match the specific needs of each student, rapidly accelerating reading progress.

It is a resource that every teacher needs...I became more confident as a teacher and as a reading teacher. I went to school to get a reading specialist degree and when I graduated, I still didn't feel confident in the classroom. My favorite subject to teach was math not reading. I felt like a robot going through the motions. TRI has really helped me focus my small group and one-on-one reading instruction. It just gave me much more confidence and I knew I could teach children how to read.

TRI | Proven Tutoring
TRI is pleased to announce our partnership with supports the use of evidence-based tutoring programs across the US. Recognizing the increased demand for tutoring in the current educational environment, we have adapted the TRI model to work within a tutoring framework. Teachers using TRI for tutoring function outside of the regular classroom, still implementing TRI one-on-one with students throughout the school day for a period of 8-10 weeks, but reaching a larger number of students. These TRI teachers work with four cohorts of 15 students, accelerating reading progress for 60 students across the school year.
