Learn how The Third Quest can help poor adolescent readers

Ancora Publishing is an educational publishing company dedicated to changing the face of education. At ILA 2020, we are featuring The Third Quest, a comprehensive reading intervention for adolescent poor readers developed by Read Well K-2 lead author Marilyn Sprick and Ann Watanabe. Teachers, students, parents, and data attest to the effectiveness of the program. It’s a fit for students who have plateaued and are not motivated by computer-based solutions. 

Through a balance of narrative fiction and informational text, intrigue and mystery engage students as they travel through ancient history. Research-based lessons include work with sophisticated vocabulary, word study, comprehension and fluency, and provide study skills and CCSS connections.
