The Web-based ESL ReadingSmart educational program offers comprehensive yet individualized academic support for students who are learning English as a second language. The students range from elementary school beginners to college-bound students and even adults.
The ESL ReadingSmart program integrates the four language skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing as a supplement to a traditional, structured classroom setting. Students take an initial placement test and are provided with content-based lessons that support their in-class learning, especially in the language arts. The Web-based learning environment allows students to follow their own individualized learning path. Each of the 148 lessons provides a variety of instructional materials, such as reading selections, worksheets and printable handouts for teachers.
