I’m looking for a reading program to help my students with the Common Core standards. The ideal program will help them deal with complex text and academic vocabulary.



Thanks for contacting Merit. Our web based reading and vocabulary programs help students understand complex text and academic vocabulary. I’m sure they can help you too.

Our most popular programs for this purpose are Reading Skill Builder and Vocabulary Stretch.

Reading Skill Builder supplies targeted instruction in specific reading skills. Concepts covered include vocabulary in context, main idea, and author’s purpose. It’s self-paced and self-advancing. Context clues help students while they work.

Vocabulary Stretch uses multiple activities to teaches students root words, origins, and meanings.
