Area of Concern: Reading Comprehension

Submitted by: Teacher

Grade Level: Middle School

Competency: Below Level

My students are really struggling to understand reading assignments. The assignments given are already below level and it is effecting their test scores. What do you offer that can help them?



It seems that your classroom would benefit greatly from our programs that focus on reading comprehension. It is not uncommon for middle school students to feel challenged by reading fundamentals.

For your classroom I recommend Reading Skill Builder. This program helps students sharpen their reading and critical thinking skills.

You may also want to consider the Intensive Reading Web Suite. In this program students learn how to use basic reading improvement strategies and write well-organized answers to open-ended questions. This is a more comprehensive package if you are looking for even more.
