LGL ELA Edge, a powerful web-based learning system, provides the necessary skills for foundational (K-6) reading success. The instructional solution uses granular data from diagnostic assessments to build customized courses across critical foundational areas such as letter sounds, word decoding, sentence reading, reading comprehension, vocabulary, and grammar.
The platform follows national and state content standards for the teaching of reading and English Language Arts. Each lesson has been carefully curated to help all students overcome specific special needs such as dyslexia, auditory processing difficulties, learning disabilities, attention deficits, and behavioral issues.
From the outset, Let’s Go Learn employs DORA (Diagnostic Online Reading Assessment) to measure each student’s skills across seven foundational reading subskills. Unlike most summative assessments, Let’s Go Learn identifies each student’s ZPD (zone of proximal development) prior to instruction to determine which skills a student will be able to work through next. This ensures students are constantly working at the right level, and feel motivated to succeed.
Following the research-based diagnostic assessment, LGL Edge automatically assigns personalized online reading courses for students in need of additional support or instruction.
Throughout each personalized reading course, LGL ELA Edge provides explicit instruction across difficult concepts via animations, songs, and graphics.
The step-by-step teaching of word decoding and phonological skills is designed to help students overcome deficiencies in the processing of text. Students feel engaged with content as they learn each skill and seize opportunities to prove their knowledge during gamified instructional quizzes. The program provides direct instructional feedback for incorrect answers during practice sessions, so students can understand why an answer is incorrect and practice the right steps.
As students work within LGL ELA Edge, all progress is captured within the platform and instantly available for stakeholders to explore in an easy-to-understand, actionable data report. Teachers can explore sharable reports for an individual student or for the whole class, and use data and recommendations to plan teacher-directed whole-class instruction or target skill gaps for scaffolding. With great access to rich, actionable data, educators can easily leverage this information to develop PLAAFPS and IEPs, or to elevate conversations about progress during parent meetings.
Ensure mastery of skills with research-based instruction that adapts to skill gaps and provides practice opportunities.
