What is TLC?
Anna Plan
The Anna Plan is a primary intervention program that was founded in Anna, Illinois over 15 years ago by a team of Reading Recovery Teachers.

In Anna, entire classes of K-2 students visit the reading room where the teacher and 3 Reading Specialists work with small groups of students grouped by DRA instructional levels.

The students come to the Reading Room 4 days a week for 25 minutes a day.
Why did we choose this program?
Over half of our students were entering 3rd grade with a DRA instructional level between 12 and 20. (28 is the expected norm)

Inclusion of all students and instructional staff
