Your Priority. Our Commitment.

As an education leader in Utah, you know how vital it is to help students achieve reading proficiency by the end of third grade. And the need goes beyond that with English language learners and those requiring reading intervention in grades four and above.

The Utah State Board of Education acknowledged Reading Horizons Discovery® as a K–3 foundational literacy program that uses systematic direct instruction to build crucial early literacy skills, ensuring all students attain reading proficiency by the end of third grade. Professional educators in Utah conducted an extensive review of the program before the State Board included it on their approved curriculum list. Click here to access the approved list.

“Phonics has been ignored way too long. Reading Horizons has been extremely well-received by our faculty and students. Their tech support has been amazing and their training has been exceptional.”
S. Tayrien
Instructional Coach, Greenwood Charter School, UT
“We implemented Reading Horizons last year, and our reading scores increased so much that we were in the top five schools in the state for growth with our 1st-3rd grade Acadience scores. We attribute much of this growth to using Reading Horizons curriculum and software.”
C. Wagner
District Curriculum Specialist, Wagner School District, UT
“The power of Reading Horizons became evident when our DIBELS benchmark results showed a 2% GAIN in proficiency in first graders from the middle of the year last year to the beginning of the year this year as second graders. We know it is due to the strong foundation that this program provides.”
J. Ross
Instructional Coach, Lakeview Elementary School, UT
“Reading Horizons has made a HUGE impact. My teachers feel so empowered to be teaching reading very explicitly, systematically, and sequentially. They feel that they finally have a resource to help them know how to teach reading in a simple way that makes sense to their students. RH is very engaging, and our students feel so empowered in learning the reading skills. We love RH!”

Simply log in and pick up where you left off with a screen that shows everything you need to prep and teach the next whole-class lesson. You’ll see a lesson summary, a script for inspiration (or to read word-for-word), a video that models teaching, and coordinating student slides that, with a tap, display on your SmartBoard or TV.

As you pick up on issues while teaching (such as problems with pronunciation, decoding, etc.), tap students’ names on your screen to use quick, color-coded tracking. Your tagging automatically groups students based on their needs so you can easily divide the class for center work.

Each student’s device automatically syncs with coordinating gamified assessment and practice,  reinforcing the day’s skill and checking progress. Once they’ve finished the activity, you can view what percentage of students are at or above level, who needs intervention, and which instructional strategies are the best next step.

This rigorous study compared impacts between students whose teachers implemented Reading Horizons Discovery® and those whose teachers did not implement the program during the 2021–2022 school year. Both implementation integrity and student outcomes were measured by the Reading Horizons Implementation Integrity Rubric and the DIBELS 8 assessment, respectively. Students receiving Reading Horizons Discovery® instruction demonstrated a positive effect size of .31, a substantively important positive effect, according to What Works Clearinghouse Evidence Standards.

With exposure to the Reading Horizons method, average student growth was more than double that of students without exposure.

Foundational Literacy for Older Students

Nearly 66% of fourth- and eighth-grade learners perform below proficient achievement levels in reading. For students grades 4 and beyond who struggle with reading, the path ahead can be difficult and discouraging. For striving readers, newcomers, and students with special needs, we can do more and do it better. And that’s the focus of this edWebinar.

For many teachers, the science of reading feels overwhelming because it’s so… different. As you teach, it’s hard to know for sure if you’re getting it “right.”
