KENSINGTON, CA (March 2011): Let’s Go Learn, Inc announces the release of the newest in its family of online supplemental reading and math instruction, LGL Edge Series, including LGL Reading Edge, LGL Comprehension Edge, LGL Pre-Algebra Edge, and LGL Algebra Edge.
The LGL Edge Series is a powerful, web-based learning system, designed specifically for secondary students, to give them the extra edge they need for success in Reading, Pre-Algebra, or Algebra I. Beginning with Let’s Go Learn’s award-winning assessments, the LGL Edge Series supplemental instruction programs engage older students, while ensuring that each student’s unique learning needs are met. Supplemental instruction uses high-interest, age-appropriate learning aids such as songs, videos, and games. Featuring a scoring system designed to encourage intrinsic motivation in students, the LGL Edge Series rewards students frequently with positive feedback as they move ahead. Teachers can monitor each student’s progress, and repeat assessments clearly show advances in learning.
Says Let’s Go Learn CEO and co-founder, Richard Capone, “The LGL Edge Series addresses a critical need in secondary education: truly differentiated instruction for older students that both offers high quality education and keeps older students engaged. By combining this exciting instruction with Let’s Go Learn’s award-winning assessments, we have created a supplemental program for secondary students unlike anything on the market!”
Let’s Go Learn’s Diagnostic Online Reading Assessment (DORA) serves as the foundation for LGL Reading Edge and LGL Comprehension Edge. DORA diagnostically assesses students in eight subskills of reading, intelligently adapting to students in real-time as they respond to each question in the online program. Immediately after the assessment, students who qualify for instruction are automatically transitioned into powerful online reading lessons in either LGL Reading Edge, which focuses on decoding skills, or LGL Comprehension Edge, which address comprehension strategies and vocabulary growth. Lessons use a wide variety of student-friendly materials, including hard-to-find high-interest/low-readability passages.
Let’s Go Learn’s Diagnostic Online Math Assessment: Pre-Algebra (DOMA: Pre-A) serves as the foundation for LGL Pre-Algebra Edge. DOMA: Pre-A diagnostically assesses students across 14 different areas of math knowledge that teachers consider essential for success at the Algebra I level, adapting to students as they respond to each question in the online program. Immediately after the assessment, students who qualify for instruction are automatically transitioned into powerful online pre-algebra lessons, with up to 63 levels of instruction.
