Area of Concern: Writing Mechanics & Grammar
Submitted by: Teacher
Competency: Below Level
My students are using Plato software to help them with reading comprehension. It seems to be working out fine, but they still need additional help. The problem is that our budget is fairly low this year,making plato software out of the question. Will your software complement the software that the students are already using? These are at-risk students in 10th grade and need help with writing and grammar (primarily). Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
