Access powerful curriculum

  • Support all four modalities of language learning: listening, speaking, reading, and writing
  • Offer content for newcomers, beginners, intermediates, early advanced, and advanced ELLs
  • Provide curriculum that has been awarded a complete WIDA PRIME V2 correlation
  • Correlate content to TESOL, CCSS, Texas, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, New York, and Ohio standards
  • Deliver rich lessons that integrate vocabulary, reading comprehension, grammar activities, and writing opportunities

Support individualized learning experiences

Each student’s level of language acquisition is met with meaningful curriculum selected to help accelerate learning. By using ESL ReadingSmart, students can:

  • Begin with an initial placement test that directs them to an individualized lesson path
  • Work on basic vocabulary and sentence structure in a Newcomers section, designed specifically for emergent ELLs
  • Explore the Lexile®-measured reading program that incorporates high-interest selections across many cultural traditions
  • Continually assess their progress through Achievement Tests delivered after every 10 lessons
  • Access real-time support, including text read aloud, an online translator that supports 37 languages, immediate feedback, and a recording tool

Empower educators with tools to inform instruction

Teacher reports and supplemental resources allow educators to reflect on student progress and take action using appropriately aligned materials. Make the most out of these educator tools, which allow you to:

  • Report on Lexile® and grade-level gains for individuals, classes, schools, and districts
  • Monitor lesson activity, student placement, and test scores for classes and individual students
  • Access districtwide reports to measure progress and identify learning trends

  • Integrate it for intervention or acceleration in after-school programs
