Literacy Navigator ©2012 provides a series of lessons in which students learn strategies for reading informational text. Reflecting the latest research on reading comprehension, and using flexible modules that tackle the demands of Common Core State Standards, students will develop the necessary skills that take them beyond their independent reading level.
Used as a supplement or as an intervention, literacy Navigator is made up of five different levels, with 30 Foundations Lessons, 15 Word Study Lessons, and pre- and post- test assessments. Each 45- to 50-minute lesson includes an introduction, work time, guided practice, and reflection. Level locators (pre-tests) in the Assessment and Reporting Online System (ARO) pinpoint the comprehension level of informational text for the student in order to determine appropriate level placement. Checkpoints then monitor and benchmark students as they progress, while post-tests assess student improvement.
With the rigor of Common Core State Standards in every lesson, literacy Navigator is carefully matched to the levels of both the Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA) and the Qualitative Assessment of Text Difficulty. This modular supplemental reading program helps students succeed at high-stakes reading assessments.
