LightSail Accelerates Student Literacy Development

The LightSail 'Literacy in Action' blog is written to provide useful insights for teachers to apply in their own ELA classrooms. Each post is written to be insightful, practical and most of all, based on what we know works from our experiences with tens of thousands of classrooms across the country. Trending topics include: Going Digital & Your Literacy Strategy, Engaged Students in Data Driven Classrooms and How Formative Assessments Can Guide Instruction. What do teachers have to say about LightSail? “LightSail has my students totally silent and engaged in their work. They love being able to choose any book they want to read from the amazing, data-driven personalized library.” “A fantastic tool to engage students in reading…The assessments built into the texts take away a lot of the guesswork that can go into literacy education.” “Super engaging and the kids really respond to seeing their Lexile levels go up as they answer questions correctly.” "Reading competency increases, writing skills are strengthened, and students feel successful. Wow! This is a win-win year in any classroom!”
