This compilation presents materials related to Andover's Integrated Reading System (AIRS), which provides quality education for first through eighth grade promoting consistency of curricula throughout the system, competence in teaching skills for mastery, student enjoyment of literature, and significant growth in reading scores. The compilation presents a brief overview of the eight components of the AIRS system: comprehension, word meaning, structural skills/spelling, phonics, individualized reading/literature, word recognition, grammar/word usage, and capitalization/punctuation. The majority of the compilation consists of excerpts of AIRS instructional materials for each of the eight components. The compilation also includes a checklist indicating how the AIRS project fulfills many of the 17 recommendations of "Becoming a Nation of Readers" and another brochure that describes the program and its eight components.
