Washington State University, Center for Distance and Professional Education will offer eight different reading skills programs for 4-year-olds through adults. Tuition and materials fees vary by program level.
The sessions will begin the week of June 21, and a late summer session begins the week of July 28.
The classes will be offered in Bellevue, Mercer Island and Issaquah.
Reading programs for younger students build comprehension and students learn the phonics and fluency skills they need to become strong readers. Programs for older students and adults are geared toward improving comprehension and study skills, vocabulary and speed reading. The skills taught in the classes reinforce the importance of reading for pleasure and developing a lifelong love of books.
These programs have been offered as a service to the community by Washington State University, Center for Distance and Professional Education since 2004. The programs are taught by instructors from the Institute of Reading Development.
