Students who struggle to read need more time and more reinforcement and practice on missing skills. Sometimes school day instruction and intervention is not enough. Out-of-school support can close the gap for these students. An afterschool curriculum that follows the science of reading and aligns with school data is key. The Reading Roadmap has developed the first ever afterschool reading intervention system.

The Reading Crossroads curriculum, based on current research and the science of reading, is a sequential skill-based phonics program intended to reach struggling readers. The lessons are designed to be taught over five days, with each lesson being 30-minutes in length. Each lesson contains phonemic awareness, sight words, nonsense words, word sorts, the writing of words, writing of sentences, and reading connected text.
