RIF Exchange

Ideal for Grades: In-Service, Professional Development
Duration: Thirteen 30-minute programs
Producer: ©1999 Reading Is Fundamental

When children learn to read, they open wide a magic door to the world. For many kids, the key to learning to read is a teacher who understands what children with different learning strengths, motivation, and background knowledge need in order to become enthusiastic, independent readers. Rather than a "one-size-fits-all" curriculum, the teacher brings individualized goal-setting, flexible grouping, and choice into the classroom — what educators call "differentiated instruction."

RIF Exchange is a series that keeps educators, parents and local RIF coordinators informed about the latest literacy topics. Each show offers practical tips on making reading fun for kids, highlights great books to share, and profiles successful RIF programs and volunteers across the country.

RIF Exchange is a production of RIFNet, a distance learning service of Reading Is Fundamental, Inc. RIFNet is funded by a Stars Schools grant from the U.S. Department of Education.

Reading Is Fundamental, Inc. prepares and motivates children to read by delivering free books and literacy resources to those children and families who need them most. RIF is the oldest and largest children’s and family nonprofit literacy organization in the United States.

Rights granted with purchase include: a) life of media audiovisual use, b) public performance, c) campus or building closed circuit and digital/video-on-demand transmission.
