Area of Concern: Reading Fundamentals

Submitted by: Teacher

Grade Level: High School

Competency: Below Level

I teach 9th grade students who are below grade level in Reading. Their deficiencies range from phonics skills, comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, etc. Most of my students are on a reading level between 5th grade – 8th grade.



Merit Software products would probably be very beneficial to your students.

Since they need help in several areas I recommend the Intensive Reading Web Suite.

The activities in the Intensive Reading Web Suite span from a 3rd to 8th grade level.  It contains a variety of reading comprehension and vocabulary exercises that will help students to determine main ideas, draw inferences, conclusions and understand vocabulary from text, identify sequence of details and use context clues.  Built-in hints and tips support students while the work.  All student work is automatically stored in an easy-to-use online portfolio.  Free samples are available on the Intensive Reading Web Suite web page.

Good luck!
