Differentiate & Accelerate

Only Achieve3000 provides a patented method of online differentiated instruction that reaches all students one-on-one to accelerate their reading gains, empowering them to build the literacy skills needed to read and comprehend the complex, grade-level texts found in basal textbook programs:

  • All students read the same grade-appropriate nonfiction content, but it is automatically tailored to their individual Lexile® reading levels–with 12 levels in English and 8 in Spanish.
  • Lessons employ a research-based 5-Step Literacy Routine that develops students’ close-reading techniques and evidence-based writing skills while encouraging classroom discussion and debate.
  • Stretch articles challenge students to work with the same content at grade-level or higher text complexity.
  • Ongoing and embedded assessments continually monitor student progress, fueling an adaptive content system that automatically adjusts text complexity to meet students’ evolving needs.

When used as little as twice a week, Achieve3000 is proven to double or even triple expected learning gains in a single school year!

Reinforce & Extend

Each Achieve3000 textbook alignment course provides a customized set of lessons aligned to the topics and themes in your basal textbook program curriculum.

  • The alignment pairs a reading from your current curriculum with a nonfiction lesson from Achieve3000.
  • Talking points and text-dependent discussion questions – found in the Achieve3000 Teacher Edition – then tie the two passages together, making it easy to integrate Achieve3000 into your existing curriculum.
  • This combination builds essential literacy skills while reinforcing and extending students’ background knowledge.
  • Students are thus empowered to critically evaluate the two readings in relation to each other and reach the greater of depths of knowledge needed for success on high-stakes assessments.

Plus, because students can complete Achieve3000 lessons anytime, anywhere, and on any device – online or offline thanks to Achieve3000’s apps for iPad®, Android™ and Chrome™ – they can spend more time on task for even greater learning gains!
