But how will this work with my current material? Supplement The Perfect K-3 4th - 12th Grade Overall, teachers reported a very positive attitude about
their professional development experience for all three years of the study. Additionally, teachers took an exceedingly optimistic position about key program strategies. The evaluator expressed outcomes as “incredible” and “rewarding.” Of the progress made, the evaluator said that “there was two-to-three years’ progress in four weeks.” The evaluator said that the gains were significant, because they happened “over and over” with students in her classroom. Granite High School Iron Springs Elementary "The design of the program enables teachers to strengthen their understanding of the underlying phonetic structure of our language. Instruction is explicit, systematic and built cumulatively, progressing from simple skills to more complex."

On average, inmates for whom both pre- and post-test scores are available exhibit a 2.1 grade gain. Overall, student progress was remarkable. California Dept. of Corrections 3.5 Grade Level Increase 2.1 Grade Level Increase 7.3 Temple University The instructors found the multi-sensory teaching method engaged students in a way that helped them use their individual learning styles. Students were able to learn independently using Reading Horizons courseware, and the Mastery, Drill, and Practice section of the software helped to internalize the decoding skills. The instructors enjoyed using direct instruction to help the students become participants which, in turn, improved the students’ confidence and independence. 3.5 Grade Level Increase 9.05 2.71 Grade Levels 2.36 Grade Level Increase 5.07 5.2 So is it just computer software?
