Scholastic EDGE builds on students’ strengths and employs the term “striving” to describe readers who are 6 to 24 months below grade level. Carefully developed by literacy expert Adria Klein, Ph.D. Scholastic EDGE was created to provide powerful instructional strategies for teachers to use to better support striving readers in the classroom.
Scholastic EDGE students are striving readers and EL students who are reading 6 to 24 months below grade level, as well as Pre-A students. The goal for Scholastic EDGE students is to make accelerated progress in order to bring them up to grade-level proficiency.
