Implemented at Hill Learning Center and in public, charter, and independent schools across North Carolina and beyond, Hill Reading Achievement Program (HillRAP) provides educators with a research-based, individualized, structured approach to improving reading for students who are struggling. HillRAP typically serves students with foundational gaps in literacy development due to one or more of the following profiles:
- Diagnosed or undiagnosed learning differences or attention challenges
- Limited English proficiency (i.e. English Language Learners)
- Effects of growing up in poverty
The Hill Reading Achievement Program, or HillRAP Digital, leverages technology to support teacher-delivered, individualized, small-group reading intervention for struggling readers. HillRAP is a mastery-based program that is ideally delivered in 45-minute blocks with a 4:1 student to teacher ratio. The HillRAP instructor and students access content–including individualized drill questions, word lists, and decodable texts–through wirelessly connected iPads, whether they are in the same room or over the internet!
HillRAP is aligned with research-validated reading strategies in the National Reading Panel’s five key areas for effective reading instruction —phonics, phonemic awareness, fluency, reading comprehension, and vocabulary.
Independent, third party evaluations of HillRAP implementation in public schools demonstrated positive impacts on student achievement and growth in reading. HillRAP students build confidence as they experience reading success, often for the first time.
