Heinemann offers districts, schools, teachers and tutors flexible and easy-to-implement summer programs for reading, writing and mathematics that are student-centered, emphasize social emotional learning, and honor responsive teaching. We also offer research-based and highly effective small-group accelerated reading intervention programs that will provide continued growth throughout the summer.
