Posted on April 3rd, at 5: This was an awesome article, and a lot of good, insightful comments as well. I just came back from a BNI open house as a guest, and I have to say that it sounded good at first.
When I started tutoring him in October, the teacher said he was reading at the preprimer or Kindergarten level. Kolton has steadily improved. It is now March. He is in the middle of Level 3. His teacher just retested him, and he is now reading on a 2nd grade independent level, and a 3rd grade instructional level.
Thank you Susan Barton!!!!: Her reading, comprehension, and joy in reading have all improved because of this program. She is becoming more confident, and she can now attack words successfully. In spelling last year, she struggled so much. Now she gets assigned 15 words each week, and gets right.
Her reading is more fluid.
She wants to try words she has not seen before, and often gets them right. All of her teachers have seen the difference. This program is special and needs to spread. If you need a voice, I pledge my support. A few weeks ago, I discovered my son curled up in a chair reading a reference book on the Civil War.
This was literally the first time I had seen him reading for pleasure. He did need help with a few words, but many of the long words superintendent, overwhelming he was able to read by breaking into syllables.
He was so excited that he kept sharing information from the book with me. We are both so pleased with his progress. We homeschool, so I use at home! He went through 5 years of elementary school staying at a kindergarten reading level.
She started tutoring him at the beginning of sixth grade. He just finished seventh grade, and his success is beyond words.
For the first time, he took the state standards test at the end of the year, and he passed the reading portion with a 3 — which means he met the standards. His teacher was so excited that she pulled him out of lunch to give him the news. Imagine going from the kindergarten level to the 7th grade level in just 2 years.
I want to thank you for the program. My hope is that all schools will have at least one teacher who has been trained in your program so they will be able to help another child like Kyle.
Now at the end of level 4, my son is finally reading and it is so exciting!! We have lots of work still to do, but his progress is undeniable. When we started Barton, he could not read at all. I am so excited to see him continue to progress with level 5 and beyond.
She complained that the other kids laughed at her. My daughter began the Barton Reading System in October. I am thrilled to report her progress. In just two months, her reading improved by 20 words per minute. She now loves school.
She also loves to read. It was worth every penny. But more importantly, it restored her self-esteem!!!! I am so thankful for this program. It saved her life — many, many times. He is only on Level 4 of the Barton program, but he is now reading novels.Check this page for short stories, talk teasers, technical info and words of wisdom from our DEF CON speakers Past & Present.

This intervention promotes the acquisition of spelling or sight words. The student is given a sheet containing words to practice. The student studies each word on the sheet, covers the word briefly and copies it from memory, then compares the student-copied word to the original correct model (Joseph et al., ; Skinner, McLaughlin & Logan, ).
