RIM Reading Skills Guide. Revised.
Fairbanks North Star Borough School District, AK.
This reading skills guide for grades kindergarten through six is based on the Readiness-Instruction-Maintenance model, which is designed to serve as an aid in the teaching of reading by supplying a cohesive framework for the instruction and acquisition of basic reading skills. In the RIM model, readiness (R) stands for exposure to the skill, mastery not expected; instruction (I) stands for formal presentation with expectation of 80% mastery on tests at that grade level; and maintenance (M) stands for review and expansion of the skills previously presented. The guide is organized with emphasis on the following points: (1) it is geared toward the average student at each grade level; (2) each skill is written as a behavioral objective; (3) the four major reading skills of word analysis, vocabulary, comprehension, and study skills are addressed at each grade level; and (4) each objective is written to allow for increasing degrees of difficulty according to the grade level in which it will be used.
