The biggest obstacle to proficient reading for many students is their lack of automaticity, or speed, in understanding words. Most students, even those in the lowest quartile, can recognize frequent words…eventually. The problem lies in the length of time that it takes them to recognize even common words. Struggling readers devote their energies to recognizing words, thus not attending to the content of what they are reading.
TextProject was started to address this problem. Over the past decade, we have developed a set of solutions aimed at increasing automaticity that includes student texts, word lists, webinars, and research.
