Goals & Mission
The goals and mission of American Indian Solutions are to assist in the improvement of the reading and literacy skills of American Indian children, adults and others. Our projects focus on training reading and literacy tutors to learn the necessary knowledge, values, skills and techniques to teach students to improve their reading and literacy skills.
Teachers, teacher aids, parents and others are trained to become expert reading tutors to help illiterate and functionally illiterate children and adults to improve their literacy skills.
These targeted reading and literacy tutors are taught to teach reading using phonics and phonemic decoding skills. They are also taught how to teach students letter recognition, short vowel sounds, long vowel sounds, beginning sounds, ending sounds, beginning clusters, ending clusters, consonant digraphs, blends, vowel digraphs, basic sight words, word attack skills and much more.
They are also taught how to teach students about the types of sentences, punctuation, synonyms, antonyms, homonyms, prefixes, suffixes, root words, syllabication, parts of speech, comprehension and other essential reading skills
After being trained, these reading tutors are prepared and capable to begin tutoring students to improve their reading and literacy skills immediately.
American Indian students have the worst reading scores in America each year along with the highest illiteracy rates of both children and adults.
