iRead® harnesses the power of an “I can” attitude to create proficient, excited readers by Grade 3. Leveraging the motivating power of success, iRead’s adaptive technology adjusts instruction to meet children where they are and provides explicit instruction and guided practice to build mastery. Whether traveling through the program's virtual Beastie Hall classrooms with their personalized avatar or engaging in learning center activities with peers, children experience, share, and demonstrate success and develop the confidence needed for continued academic achievement.
Adaptive technology gives educators the power to instantly adjust instruction to meet individual needs as they arise.
iRead catapults children into an exciting, motivating, interactive learning environment.
Data driven and research based, iRead’s unique method proves its efficacy year after year.
Children's learning journeys are as unique as children themselves. By employing a powerful combination of personalized learning, embedded assessment, complementary technology, and the opportunity for small-group instruction, teachers are able to close the achievement gap before it has the chance to develop. Compliant with Universal Design for Learning recommendations, iRead technology puts success at every child’s fingertips. Whether they are English Learners, have special needs, or need grade-level support, iRead drives success every step of the way.
Children progress at an instructional pace that matches their readiness. Placed at the appropriate starting point by an initial screener, children’s proficiency dictates content skill level, pacing, and practice opportunities. Once mastery is demonstrated, students reflect on their progress and advance to the next level.
Based on the FASTT algorithm, each child’s performance is continuously monitored in order to create customized pacing, instructional load, and content. Mastery is achieved as knowledge is systematically moved from short- to long-term memory.
Motivation surges as children are given the chance to create customizable reading buddy avatars to journey with them through the Beastie Hall program. Students collect accomplishments in a personal backpack and monitor their own progress.
Immediately accessible technology enhances teacher efficiency by placing growth charts, lesson plans, and resources for professional development at their fingertips.
Involved families make the difference between struggling learners and proficient learners. By accessing the host of available resources on the Family Portal, family members can act as partners with teachers.
