Common Core State Standards and Reading Assistant

Check out the product and performance behind, Reading Assistant if your K-12 school or school system is in the throes of shifting to the Common Core State Standards.  Link is: http://www.scilearn.com/products/reading-assistant/

At a time when academic stakes are higher, we have at our disposal a tool to help tutor kids (through fascinating automation) to practice reading, re-reading, processing of information, vocabulary acquisition, comprehension and FLUENCY.  When with colleagues of the Reading Assistant organization today, I learned that there is a very strong positive correlation between improved fluency and improved comprehension.  Teachers cannot do enough 1 on 1 work with children required, and Reading Assistant helps!

If you’d like to see what some schools are doing to improve children’s reading performance in grades K-12, through this product, let me know.  My email is jw@atlanticresearchpartners.org . The data are staggering, and impressive.  This tool even counts words correct per minute, and has a great collection of books for kids to select topics (books and articles) to work on.
