Reading Mastery provides carefully sequenced direct instruction in the concepts, skills, and strategies students need to become proficient readers. Content is presented at a controlled pace that ensures students have the requisite skills and knowledge to master increasingly complex reading and language arts content. The reading and language arts strands of the program are presented separately. Reading lessons integrate phonemic and phonological awareness, vocabulary skills, reading comprehension strategies, and fluency. Language arts lessons focus on developing oral language and writing skills. Lessons for both strands provide opportunities for guided and independent practice with scaffolded support, and for students to apply what they have learned.
Content follows a logical progression and builds on students’ prior learning when introducing new skills. Instruction focuses on preventing the misunderstandings and frustration that may discourage struggling readers. Resources for each Response to Intervention (RtI) tier are provided and Reading Mastery: Fast Cycle is available for high performing students.
Educators have been and always will be at the core of the learning experience. The solutions we develop help educators impart their knowledge to students more efficiently. We believe that harnessing technology can enhance learning inside and outside of the classroom and deepen the connections between students and teachers to empower greater success.
By partnering with educators around the globe, our learning engineers, content developers and pedagogical experts are developing increasingly open learning ecosystems that are proven to improve pass rates, elevate grades and increase engagement for each individual learner while improving outcomes for all.
