While literacy continues to be a problem both in Memphis and across Tennessee, Grizzlies Prep is proving the possible for reading growth. With tiered interventions in basic reading and reading comprehension, enrichment classes, and time dedicated each day to reading a freely chosen book, Grizzlies Prep students grow over two years in reading each school year. And, with TCAP scores for literacy down across the state, scores at Grizzlies Prep were up 8.6 points this past year. In this session, you will learn about our approach to reading and about the curriculum designed by our team of literacy specialists.
