What’s unique and revolutionary about MindChamps’ reading program?
MindChamps has just created the new benchmark for language enrichment in every child – tomorrow’s reading programs, which are about thinking, understanding and interacting with the written word.
The MindChamps reading program incorporates 4 keys strategies based on methodologies that have been validated over years of worldwide research:
1. Narrative IntelligenceTM
Adapted from the up-coming book Narrative Intelligence by award-winning authors Brian Caswell and David Chiem, MindChamps Reading builds your child’s narrative intelligence via Immersive ReadingTM and Theatrical Strategies. These strategies help to develop your child’s higher order thinking skills and his interaction with the written content and knowledge
2. Relationship to Reading
Relationship to Reading is about creating an engaging and positive reading experience so as to build every child’s love for reading. It is an essential mindset for creating a ‘life-long reader’.
We get your child excited about reading. We know how important positive mental, physical and emotional states are in relation to wanting to learn. We motivate our students to want to read because the more you want to do anything, the more you do it and the better you become at it!
3. WordWise: Integrated PhonicsTM
MindChamps Reading has created the Integrated PhonicsTM approach, because this has been proven to be the most effective way to master written language. We focus on ‘meaning-making’ – explicitly teaching word sounds within the context of text. Children are able to gain real meaning and learning from what they read.
4. Literacy-Quotient Assessment
MindChamps’ proprietary literacy assessment is the most comprehensive measurement available in any program in the world today – identifying exactly how skilled your child is in all aspects of literacy which include letter/word knowledge, reading level and fluency and depth of comprehension.
We give regular feedback – through formal literacy assessments at the beginning and end of each program, and through weekly record-taking. Students and their parents know exactly how well they are progressing. This empowers our students, and motivates them to achieve more.
