Reading Horizons Discovery® Earns Prestigious Spot on Texas Resource Review List

(April 13, 2023—Kaysville, Utah) Reading Horizons, a leading provider of foundational literacy programs, has announced that its innovative Reading Horizons Discovery® has been recognized by the Texas Resource Review (TRR). Texas passed House Bill (HB) 3 to address the problem of students lacking essential early literacy skills. This legislation mandates all Texas school districts implement a phonics curriculum using systematic direct instruction from kindergarten through third grade. The TRR has acknowledged Reading Horizons Discovery as a K–3 foundational literacy program that uses systematic direct instruction to ensure all students attain reading proficiency by the end of third grade by building crucial early literacy skills. 

This recognition comes after an extensive review process by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). In partnership with independent reviewers, the TEA evaluated Reading Horizons Discovery based on rigorous criteria, including alignment with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) standards, program efficacy, and ease of implementation.

“The Texas Resource Review’s endorsement is a testament to our curriculum’s impact, crafted from nearly 40 years of innovation aligned with research. We’re honored and motivated to continue empowering Texas educators in eradicating illiteracy,” said Tyson Smith, CEO of Reading Horizons. “Our dedicated team has worked tirelessly to create an effective program anchored in reading science that supports readers at various proficiency levels. This recognition is a testament to their efforts.”
