Early Language Comprehension Individualized Instruction (ELCII)
Within a MTSS framework, ELCII is a Tier 1 preventative tool to teach inference skills as a supplement to core instruction. ELCII is designed to improve reading comprehension by developing inference making for all students in kindergarten across a 10-week time period.
ELCII does not rely on decoding skills. It includes a series of lessons delivered via an interactive, cloud-based software application and scripted book read-alouds.
Specifically, in ELCII Kindergarten students:
- View age-appropriate (10 fiction and 10 nonfiction) videos
- Learn key academic vocabulary words
- Respond (by touch screen selections) to inferential questions
- Receive whole-class (10 fiction and 10 nonfiction) read aloud (training in listening comprehension) lessons
