FOR GRADES 4–12
LANGUAGE! Live California is for struggling adolescent readers and writers.
LANGUAGE! Live California works in many different scenarios, including in general education classrooms. With that in mind, we designed this intervention program for the individual needs of all types of learners—including English language learners, special education students, those with learning challenges, and any student who struggles to read at grade level. Regardless of learner needs, the goal of LANGUAGE! Live remains the same—accelerate students’ literacy growth so they meet grade-level expectations and can successfully participate in core instruction.
Backed by solid research, LANGUAGE! Live California is a part of your district's solution to literacy challenges faced by students who struggle.
Students enter the program at a point designated to meet their instructional needs. This entry point will stretch students without frustrating them. Students have the opportunity to progress through the online Word Training component at their own pace—allowing for demonstration of mastery early on and sparing students precious time working on skills they have already honed.
Pacing guide suggestions are available for students who need intensive intervention as well as students who need to fill particular gaps. Providing an online student experience allows individuals to move ahead quickly where skills have been met or slow down when there are instructional gaps.
The blended model provides a variety of ways to individualize support and modify the lessons to meet the needs of a specific group of students in the classroom. The reporting system allows teachers to quickly identify individual needs to increase the rigor or intervene with support. Teacher reviews and alerts deliver the notifications teachers need to investigate the instructional needs of a specific student or a small group of students struggling with similar skills and modify lessons as needed.
Instructional modifications are provided throughout LANGUAGE! Live—alleviating the need to guess at the next best approach for a specific learner. Here are some examples:
Online Foundational-Skills Instruction
