SuccessMaker Reading is an interactive, standards-based course designed to provide supplemental instruction and practice in essential reading for grades K through 8.
The student experience begins with Initial Placement which identifies the appropriate starting point for instruction and then moves the student seamlessly into the courseware.
Reading lessons will take learners through focused instruction and guided practice before moving into more independent activities. Learners work at their own pace, receiving additional support when threshold scores are not met and reviewing previous material to ensure retention and maintain proficiency.

The SuccessMaker curriculum is well-correlated to the Common Core State Standards, and students leave junior high with skills derived from strong work on phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension even if it's multiple levels below grade.
Each reading lesson begins with brief, focused instruction presented as a video or animation.
At the middle school level, students will select an avatar before reading a text passage. This character provides guidance from a peer coach point of view as the learner reads.
Tools like the highlighter, text tracker, sticky notes, read-to-me function and hyperlinked glossary are just a click away.
SuccessMaker keeps learners on the road to success. At every turn, the program helps students break through roadblocks by delivering tutorials, prerequisite instruction, and other scaffolded interventions based on their individual needs.
