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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
