The LANGUAGE! Live Difference

Don’t take our word for it. Hear from satisfied customers about how LANGUAGE! Live has made an impact in their districts, schools, and classrooms.

Middle School Students Across Charleston Feel Pride in Their Reading Growth

“It’s building that confidence for them, where at 16, they kind of felt like a failure, ‘I can’t do it; I can’t go to high school. Now, they have the success that they can do it; they know they can do it now.”
— Jennifer McMillan, Master Reading Teacher, Burke Middle High School, Charleston, SC

Dramatic Gains in Lexile Scores at Bartlett High School, Anchorage, AK

“Everybody is working in a much smaller student-to-teacher ratio, and people are getting a lot more individual instruction.”
— Antavia Hamilton-Ochs, Teacher, Bartlett High School, Anchorage, AK

LANGUAGE! Live and LETRS Are Changing Lives at Syracuse City School District

If you can move these kids, so when they go to high school they don’t feel so far gone, you have literally changed the trajectory of their lives.
— Rhonda Zajac, Director of English Language Arts, Syracuse City School District

Proven Results

Almost 2 Years' Growth in One Year!

With LANGUAGE! Live California, a good implementation equals good results. Students exceed typical gains and close the gap faster than with any other literacy product. For example, with a 45-minute implementation, it is common for teachers to facilitate classrooms in which students have completed 6 to 7 units in Word Training and Text Training. Research show that a well-balanced program leads to great results.*

*Annual growth based on Scammacca, N. K., Fall, A., & Roberts, G. (2015). Benchmarks for expected annual academic growth for students in the bottom quartile of the normative distribution. Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 8, 366–379
