Reading Plus is the only reading system that simultaneously develops all three domains of reading: physical, cognitive, and emotional. By integrating three domains into one personalized system, Reading Plus builds the physical skills essential for fluency and stamina, provides the personalized, leveled content that allows students to build vocabulary and comprehension, and taps into student interests to build confidence and motivation. Rooted in eight decades of research, Reading Plus is proven to increase achievement in students from elementary grades through college. So your students become not just better readers, but lifelong readers.
When students read independently, they don’t engage with each domain of reading separately, in isolation from the others. They engage with all three domains simultaneously and so should their reading instruction.
The Silent Reading Solution Silent reading is all around us. It’s how we navigate our world. To become independent, lifelong learners, students must be able to successfully transition from foundational skill development to independent silent reading. Reading Plus helps students transition from “learning to read” to “reading to learn” by building the unseen and unheard skills that make comprehension possible and learning inevitable.
Many students struggle with math because they rely on arbitrary memorization techniques to answer specific questions. With this approach, students do not gain a substantive understanding of fundamentals and simply cannot adjust to more sophisticated problem solving.
With Symphony Math®, these problems are resolved. A web-enabled program with a visual and highly intuitive interface, Symphony Math® helps students understand at a conceptual level. Instead of being overwhelmed by numbers, students move at their own speed and learn how math works. Through every stage of Symphony Math®, students gain a strong foundation in underlying principles and become better equipped to take on basic and advanced subjects. Going far beyond rote math drills and practice tests, this special teaching solution illuminates the core of learning and produces confident, more capable students.
