A key feature of Achieve3000's TeenBiz is that it incorporates an entire class, delivering the same content to all students but still teaching each student at a personal level. It also distributes assignments to students at different levels and administers assessments that conform to the Common Core standards.
Achieve3000's TeenBiz adopts a five-step literacy routine that is in conformance with the Common Core requirements. This routine teaches students how to acquire knowledge from informational texts and imparts them with the ability to deliver persuasive arguments based on supporting evidence. The five-step routine also enables students to use their higher-order thinking skills, empowers them to develop strong content knowledge and equips the students with the skill to communicate effectively by reading and writing.
TeenBiz features anchor lessons, which are extra lessons that address grade-specific content. In these bonus lessons, students learn how to express themselves and to give sound opinions based on prior information and new information that they learn.
Additionally, TeenBiz comes with the Find-a-Book tool, which assists students in finding the right books based on their interests and their reading levels. This online tool also comes in handy for teachers and parents, as it allows them to enter Lexile measures.
