The Reading Journey is NOT a franchise and does not teach with one set curriculum. Because of vast experience, teachers bring the best of the curriculum and strategies that have proven successful in the classroom over time. Because of the lessons that experience teaches, learning is directed by the child and the teacher easily picks up on his unique learning strengths, best avenue of learning, and style. This could not happen if we brought a set curriculum to the table that we are directed to use. Is your child an auditory, visual, or kinesthetic learner? Motivating all 3 avenues leads to greatest success, but letting the strongest mode lead the way is very important.
Some teachers have dyslexia background, some special education, some with administration experience. Some have Montessori training, and many have multi-grade experience. They bring their unique abilities, not the ability to follow a given total curriculum designed for the "average or typical" school student.
