Despite increased investment in technology, schools continue to struggle to help all students become successful independent readers.
For many students, the technology isn’t providing what they actually need. To read read independently, their physical skills, cognitive abilities, and emotions are all working simultaneously. Instruction plans need to integrate these skills and abilities. But most digital tools don’t integrate - they isolate - or overlook them completely.
Inefficient physical reading skills are the hidden hurdle for a majority of struggling readers. If not addressed, students will continue to struggle, fall behind, and lose confidence and motivation.
That’s why Reading Plus provides students with integrated, personalized instruction in all three domains of reading.
The Physical domain, to develop the silent reading fluency and stamina required to support comprehension and make reading more comfortable, enjoyable, and productive. The Cognitive domain, to build the academic vocabulary and comprehension skills required for close and critical reading. And, the Emotional domain, to increase student confidence, interest, and motivation by fostering student choice and engagement.
Reading Plus is the only program that simultaneously develops all three domains of reading, enabling students in upper elementary, middle, and high school to get what they need, when they need it, at the pace that works best for them.
