Online Reading Curriculum

Differentiated reading program for intervention, remediation, and enrichment

Online K-12 supplemental reading curriculum that targets each student’s learning gaps

LGL ELA Edge is a research-based supplemental reading program that begins with a diagnostic assessment of the performance of struggling readers and then provides explicit Specially Designed Instruction to support achievement. School districts across the nation use ELA Edge in elementary school, middle school, and high school to ensure that all students demonstrate proficiency in reading skills because these are intricately linked to academic and career success.

Students in grades k through 12 interact with lessons that combine direct instruction and focused practice with an underlying assessment and tracking system that reports to teachers in real-time. Reading content includes high-frequency words, phonemic awareness, phonics, oral reading fluency, spelling, vocabulary development, and reading comprehension strategies, as well as literary vocabulary and grammar lessons.

Lessons in LGL ELA Edge’s reading program have been carefully curated to help all students who need effective reading intervention programs, including students in Response to Intervention (RTI) programs, programs for students with disabilities, English Learners (ELs), and students with diverse learning styles.

Effective reading instruction begins with a granular diagnostic assessment.

Effective reading instruction for intervention and remediation begins with a granular diagnostic assessment that identifies student strengths and weaknesses.

GL 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 assessments identify each student’s ZPD (zone of proximal development) prior to assigning instruction. This ensures each child or student is constantly working at the correct level rather than at an arbitrary grade-level placement.

LGL ELA Edge automatically assigns instruction for students that provides 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, to monitor student progress . Research clearly shows that comprehensive 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.

Every skilled reader is more likely to 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.

Common Questions

Will LGL ELA Edge support accelerated learning to make up for learning loss or unfinished learning due to the pandemic?

Yes! LGL ELA Edge starts with an extremely accurate and broad-ranging assessment that identifies strengths and gaps across a K-12 range for all students regardless of their grade level. Then our system uses data analysis to create a learning path composed of lessons that target the learning gaps. These lessons combine explicit instruction and focused practices that support progress. Our underlying system tracks progress and updates the student's learning path in real-time and our formative assessments ensure learner progress. This will result in acceleration of learning.

Will LGL ELA Edge fulfill the Texas HB4545 legislation requiring immediate intervention in the fall for any student with a non-proficient on the STAAR state test?

Yes! LGL ELA Edge will meet this requirement with flying colors. Students who are not proficient on the STAAR state test will take a diagnostic assessment aligned with TEKS standards and it will identify student strengths and weaknesses in high-frequency words, phonemic awareness, phonics, oral reading fluency, spelling, vocabulary development, and reading comprehension skills, as well as literary vocabulary and grammar lessons. Our system then analyzes student diagnostic data and creates a learning path to close student gaps. Not only does each student get their own customized course targeting their exact needs, but the LGL system tracks performance and updates the course as warranted by student performance.

Does ELA Edge include grammar lessons?

Yes, there are lots of grammar lessons that cover K to 6 instructional levels. Lessons are selected based on students' diagnostic assessments and formative assessments, so only students who need them will get the grammar lessons.

Is LGL ELA Edge appropriate for K-3 reading?

Absolutely! Students in kindergarten, 1st grade 2nd grade, and 3rd grade will take our reading diagnostic assessment, which will identify learning gaps regardless of the grade level or age of the student. For example, if a student has a learning gap in phonological awareness and in phonics, instructional materials will offer lessons in each area that are at the optimal level for individual learning. We know that skilled reading is the foundation for academic success and our learning paths and progress monitoring and tracking system ensure timely progress. Additionally, our lesson design has color,  music, animation with game-based interactivity-- making it extremely engaging for K-3 students.

If I have a Tier 1 student who has a learning gap in only a few areas of reading, can I use LGL ELA Edge for short-term intervention?

Let's Go Learn's approach is perfect for Response to Intervention (RTI) and Multi-tiered System of Support (MTSS) programs. Our online adaptive diagnostic assessment analyzes student strengths and weaknesses and creates a learning program to fill learning gaps. Teachers can override automatically generated lessons very easily, determining which and how many lessons students should take. In this way, teachers can decide whether short-term or long-term intervention is appropriate. Also, our automated formative assessment and progress monitoring can help support a teacher's determination.
