Explicit, systematic instruction in the essential skills of literacy


logo-booksFidelity of implementation is essential to the integrity of the program. To produce the greatest student outcomes, each part of the lesson must be thoroughly taught. A high level of student engagement is critical to insure that students are learning what has been taught through close teacher monitoring. All parts of the lesson plan must be taught to the fullest in order to insure desired results.

Although lessons can be shortened in the interest of time, outcomes for the neediest of students may be compromised due to insufficient practice with previously taught skills.

Some students may need more practice than the lesson plan explicitly provides, but as teachers monitor student response, they will know when students need more individual practice with reading and spelling elements that are the most difficult to master.

LOGIC is an Orton-Gillingham-based program intended to be implemented as a core reading and spelling program beginning with kindergarten. In addition, LOGIC individual assessments make it a highly appropriate secondary and tertiary intervention that can be individualized to make closing the achievement gap possible.
