Voyager Sopris Learning showcased three of its most prominent products at ISTE 2019—Voyager Passport, LETRS, and LANGUAGE! Live:
With a new version launched in August, Voyager Passport is a proven, research-based reading solution that accelerates literacy in grades K–5 by targeting the priority skills and strategies learners need to be fluent, on-level readers. Voyager Passport, which can be used as a wraparound to any core reading curriculum for just 30 minutes per day, is intended for students who have not made adequate progress in core reading instruction, need instruction beyond the core, and need explicit, systematic intervention.
LETRS (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling) is a blended professional development course that bridges deep, meaningful research into practical classroom success. LETRS provides educators with the background, depth of knowledge, and tools to teach language and literacy skills to every student. Lead author Dr. Louisa Moats, a nationally recognized literacy expert, has worked to ensure every concept and skill is solidly based in research about how reading and language work.
LANGUAGE! Live combines foundational and advanced learning skills with digital and teacher-led reading intervention to significantly improve literacy skills. Many teachers have been impressed by the engaging effectiveness of the solution, and students consistently show substantial growth while using it.
