This training is designed for both new teachers and teachers who have experience implementing Language! Live. All teachers implementing Language! Live for the 2019-2020 school year should attend this training. Language! Live is a comprehensive reading intervention designed to accelerate reading achievement that utilizes a hybrid model of both computerized instruction and explicit, teacher directed instruction. It integrates five essential components of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. It also has a writing component.
Language! Live is designed for multiple entry points based on the placement test results/student reading level. It is an option for students who are not well matched to System 44 or READ 180, who have already taken System 44 or READ 180, or who need a learning environment with more direct and explicit instruction.
Language! Level 1 is designed for the student with a lexile range of BR to 300-500L, a fluency rate below 50 wpm and has significant gaps in foundational skills. Language! Live Level 2 is designed for the student with a lexile range of 350-800+, a fluency rate of 60-120 wpm, who is scoring below basic on high stakes tests and /or is two or more years below grade level.
