The Ticket to Read program was developed by Voyager Sopris Learning in Dallas, Texas, and it is designed to increase children's reading comprehension and fluency. The program also builds vocabulary and offers students the opportunity to increase their ticket-earning goals by raising their reading levels. Attainment of a new reading level results in the student being awarded more trophies to display in their personal clubhouse. To reach a new reading level, the student must first complete between 30 and 40 reading assignments and successfully respond to the follow-up quizzes.
The Ticket to Read program displays its interactive content through a colorful and child-friendly interface that enables easy navigation. Animations and audio enhance the activities, and self-guidance feedback is also built in to the program. Ticket to Read offers students hundreds of games and high-interest reading comprehension assignments, and the program includes support designed for students who are learning English, as stated on the Voyager Sopris website.Learn more about Corporations
