We don't have SRA's at my school, but I used them when I was in school and I loved them. I wish I could use them in my class. I'm anxous to see everyone's comments.

Good luck!

I used Reading Mastery when I taught primary special ed. I was able to teach children to read who I believe otherwise would not be reading. It REALLY works. The comprehension is very basic, so I always supplemented that area. It can seem a little robotic and repetitive but struggling readers need the repetition and routine.

I have been using SRA with my students for two years. They LOVE it! I also find that it has helped improve the students' reading level.
The only con for me is the maintenance i.e. keeping track of the booklets, ensuring that the students keep on top of the skills builders etc.

My experience with SRA had been entirely negative. Bright students hate it, as stories are weird or boring, or both. The language component is absurd. Materials seem to be written by an adult who was never a child.

Independent research stats show SRA does not help comprehension, only droning reading and robotic flat responses by students. As a teacher forced to do this by a "F" district, I quit.

I moved my children out of public school before it turned them into empty minded drones. SRA is a joke;that so many public schools and mainstream teachers cant discern this speaks loudly why Americans are being dumbef down. They dont care about empowerimg and preserving the natural joy in children's creativity. A child is not a robot, nor measured by their test scores.
