Program Overview: Differentiated Instruction
The adaptive technology in ReadAbout allows for effective differentiated instruction to personalize each student’s experience in the reading program. ReadAbout helps a wide range of students, including those below, on, or above level; English-Language Learners; and students with special needs. The ReadAbout reading program is not appropriate for students who require intensive intervention. Those students’ needs can be met with READ 180.
The ReadAbout reading software helps students at every level improve their reading achievement with proper differentiated instruction.
