This web site provides interactive online lessons that improve students' reading comprehension and build vocabulary skills.
Throughout each lesson students receive constructive feedback, and a detailed end-of-round report is displayed after several passages have been completed.
The report gives teachers and students a quick assessment of core reading skill levels. It serves as a foundation for future improvement, which can be achieved using the activities on this web site and other materials as a supplement to everyday instruction.
These lessons are a helpful resource for elementary and secondary level students, ESL classes, and GED preparation programs.
