Cedric Michael Jefferson

Through “Partners Achieving Immediate Reading Success (PAIRS),” Mr. Jefferson and Ms. Lopez increase students’ reading comprehension and fluency by providing the opportunity to discuss the reading experience with a peer. Fifth grade students learn to deliver simple lesson plans and activities and use these teaching strategies to create reading lessons and evaluations for their second grade partners. Developing fluency and vocabulary, partners work through a text together and periodically assess their own progress.
