What Students Say About ZoneReading
“I was failing my freshman history class and my teacher wanted me to drop it. I started using the ZR, learning to write outlines, take notes in the margins and be an active reader. I pulled my grade up from F to C+ by the end of the first quarter and to an A by the end of the second quarter! I am now a more independent worker, a better thinker and a more attentive student.” Sage, Senior.
After being diagnosed with ADD in middle school and getting a not so successful start to freshmen English, I realized I needed some help with my work. I was disorganized, undisciplined and distracted, and it would be a great challenge to overcome these obstacles. I started working with Anna York and learning her reading program. I began to succeed, and that motivated me to put out my best effort and live up to my potential. Mark, Senior.
I did this program to get ready for college, and it made everything easier. I could read better and study better. My friends wondered how I was able to cut through my work so efficiently. Michelle, Freshman in College.
“Now I feel like I can do it!” (Rob, 7th grader)
I couldn’t keep up with the reading before, but now I can. (Eric, sophomore)
What Teachers Say About ZoneReading
(History teacher who uses ZoneReading as part of curriculum)
Objective scores absolutely improved. Students averaged about 40% on objective tests at the first of the year. After using ZoneReading regularly, they were achieving 80%-100% by the end of the year.
Fabulous! Students feel more confident and in control. They improve in both objective and writing exercises.
Because they know the information, students feel empowered to talk in class. They are able to engage in productive, constructive participation.
Students improve in their organization of information, but, more importantly, they learn to organize their thoughts.
