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. The program then provides individualized direct instruction and interactive learning activities to close learning gaps.

The LGL system captures all data and provides real-time narrative reports for progress monitoring. Reports at the classroom level break students into groups that share learning gaps in particular reading objectives. Formative and benchmark assessments allow educators and parents evidence of student mastery.

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 there is an intricate connection between reading and academic and career success.

Core reading curriculum includes key components of reading: high-frequency words, phonemic awareness, phonics, oral reading fluency, spelling, vocabulary development, and reading comprehension strategies, as well as literary vocabulary and grammar lessons to support writing skills.

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. LGL ELA Edge is perfect for students who need help in building foundational skills, in reviewing grammar rules, or in developing deep reading skills.

Our 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.

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 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 critical reading skills and research-based strategies lead to long-term student achievement. At the end of personalized learning paths are successful readers.

Our research-based instruction is designed to be equitable, effective, and engaging.

LGL ELA Edge uses the same instructional levels identified during our powerful 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 gamified, 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 extra practice for whole-class teaching. As students work through explicit instructional lessons specially designed to be at the perfect level, our responsive platform employs immediate corrective feedback. If an answer is incorrect, a learner learns why and can then continue to 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 and therefore confident 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.

LGL ELA Edge Key Features at-a-Glance

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. By focusing on what each student needs, LGL Edge is a perfect companion to core reading instruction.

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 grades, proficiency levels, or ages of the students. 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 uses color, music, animation with game-based interactivity-- allowing lessons to captivate readers as they learn.

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 in RTI and MTSS?

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 at the correct level 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 instruction.

What process did Let's Go Learn's curriculum developers use to create LGL ELA/Reading Edge?

We always use the Universal Design Process in all of our development to ensure educational equity, accommodating the needs and abilities of every student. Basically this means that each lesson uses multiple means for engagement, representation, and action and expression. This is why we embed animation, music and lyrics, diverse characters, text and spoken text, gamified scoring, and student-driven interactivity. Consequently our curriculum is perfect for MTSS/RTI Tiers 1, 2, or 3.
