Hero and Project Description: 

Cain’s innovative teaching idea, “Action! Ready, Set, Read!,” focuses on increasing reading comprehension of struggling students at Bardstown Primary School. Cain recognizes the importance of detecting comprehension impairments in primary grades, and has designed a “reader’s theater” to identify the specific grammar and decoding areas of opportunity for each student. Through this project, students will attain specially designed scripts that address language disorders and reading difficulties, as well as gain confidence through becoming engaged, proficient readers. The project is specifically designed to link the isolated strategies taught by Speech Language Pathologists to those of teachers. The students’ performances will be shared with friends, classes, the school and families at a celebration of reading.
