What Does Reading Comprehension Booster Do?
Students practice using reading comprehension strategies with interactive texts. They read a passage, then answer main idea, sequence, and inference questions about it.
Assessments place students at suitable levels of challenge. Context-clues support students while they work. Students advance as they demonstrate readiness.
Scores and progress are automatically tracked in an Online Portfolio.
Designed for learners age 9 and up in late elementary and middle school grade levels, the software can also be used by English language learners, learning disabled pupils, and remedial readers.
Designed for English language learners and older students, as well as pupils in upper elementary and secondary grades.
