DIGITAL READING COMPREHENSION PROGRAM TO IMPROVE LITERACY SKILLS
Our program is designed to empower teachers to improve their students' performance. We provide in-depth reporting, related to each strategy, and suggest how teachers can further help their students in specific areas. This allows teachers to pinpoint individual students’ weaknesses and strengths.
The CARS & STARS Online program is based on reading comprehension ability, not year level. The Placement Centre evaluations test individual students’ comprehension levels and place them in the appropriate CARS & STARS level.
Once the Placement Centre has put the students in their designated CARS & STARS reading level, the students will begin their five Pretests to diagnose their strengths and weaknesses in the 12 reading comprehension strategies.
After completing Pretest diagnostics based on the students’ areas of need, six specific strategy lessons will be automatically recommended for the students to complete in order to remediate areas that need reinforcement.
Upon completion of the STARS lessons and Final Review, students will begin the five Post Tests. After completing the Post Tests, the students will complete their Self-Assessment 2 and select the checkbox to send a copy to your email address.
Allow your students to type their thoughts and comments right into the interactive lessons. Use various colours to emphasise different ideas or to connect important concepts, marking them up to make it easier to review that information later.
Read Aloud can be switched on for students who prefer to listen to content instead of reading, as well as those with dyslexia or other learning differences. The Read Aloud feature increases word exposure and improves vocabulary.
At Hawker Brownlow Digital, we understand that everyone’s needs are different, so we’ve created short term 3-month, mid-term 6-month and full-term 12-month subscription plans tailored to your needs to help you to achieve your goals.
