Online supplemental reading and ELA intervention that is research-based and data-driven
Online K-9 supplemental reading & ELA instruction that targets each student’s learning gaps
LGL ELA Edge is a powerful supplemental reading program that provides high-quality content, including high-frequency words, phonemic awareness, phonics, oral reading fluency, spelling, vocabulary development, and reading comprehension, as well as literary vocabulary and grammar lessons. Every student is automatically assigned a personalized learning path based on student learning gaps identified by our research-based diagnostic assessments.
LGL ELA Edge’s lessons have been carefully curated to help all students who need effective reading intervention programs, including English Language Learners, students with disabilities, and students with diverse learning styles.
Effective reading instruction begins with a granular diagnostic assessment.
LGL ELA Edge’s instructional solutions use our diagnostic assessments to identify reading/ELA learning standards that students have not yet mastered. Unlike summative assessments, our diagnostic identifies each student’s ZPD (zone of proximal development) prior to assigning instruction. This ensures each child or student is constantly working at the right level rather than at an arbitrary grade-level placement.
Following the diagnostic assessment, LGL ELA Edge automatically assigns a personalized online learning path for each student in need of additional reading support or literacy intervention. Teachers can then use our formative assessments, such as our weekly quizzes or quarterly tests, for student progress monitoring. Research clearly shows that comprehensive reading skills and research-based strategies lead to long-term student achievement.
Our research-based instruction is designed to be equitable, effective, and engaging.
LGL ELA Edge uses the same instructional levels identified during our diagnostic assessments to generate an engaging, personalized course for each student. Every LGL ELA Edge lesson provides explicit instruction and practice that is in a student’s ZPD and cognitively accessible through animations, songs, graphics, and interactivity. Students are engaged with properly leveled content that reinforces newly mastered critical skills and concepts during gamified instructional practice.
Because practice activities are designed to feel like games for students, individuals are motivated to play until they reach optimum “scores” that act as progress indicators. Practices deepen conceptual understanding and critical thinking and can be used for independent practice, small group instruction, or whole-class teaching. As students work through the various explicit and leveled instructional lessons, our responsive platform employs direct corrective feedback. If an answer is incorrect, a learner can understand why and practice until mastery is reached.
Our data-driven supplemental reading instruction works for multiple reading initiatives.
As students work within LGL ELA Edge, all progress monitoring measures are captured and immediately available for educators to explore in easy-to-understand, actionable data reports. Teachers can analyze sharable reports for an individual student or for the whole class and use data and recommendations to plan teacher-directed whole-class curriculum or to target skill gaps for scaffolding intensive intervention. With access to rich, actionable data and supplemental instructional tools and materials, educators can easily progress monitor IEPs, determine benchmark goal attainment, and inform parents about student academic growth.
Students who are proficient readers experience long-term benefits in educational and career pursuits. On the other hand, research shows that fourth-grade students who are not proficient readers will experience difficulty in content area education that relies on reading skills, strategies, and processes. LGL ELA Edge provides teachers with systematic personalized instruction driven by diagnostic and formative assessment.
