Summer reading classes are offered by the Institute of Reading Development (IRD) in partnership with Westside Extension. These reading programs have been offered by Westside Extension here at West Los Angeles College for nearly 15 years. In program 4 for entering 4th and 5th graders, the average student improves reading comprehension one to two whole grade levels, while more than doubling reading speed. Learn the best way to improve vocabulary, study textbooks, take notes and prepare for tests. Mastery of these skills will make it easier to complete assignments quickly and get better grades, and will help your child become a successful, motivated student. $39 material fee due at registration.
