Xtreme Reading* is a new class designed to allow adolescents to develop the reading and writing skills they need to pass required classes, graduate from high school, and prepare for the future.
Xtreme Reading teaches skills--called Learning Strategies --that students need now and in the future. Students who master these skills will be better prepared to attack the demands of college or a career, able to read and write confidently, solve problems independently, and work effectively as a member of a team.
