Learning. "This is a testament to our company's commitment to provide
innovative research-based curriculum in order to significantly enhance student
literacy and achievement in Florida and across the country."

Passport Reading Journeys with Edplicity is a powerful reading/language arts
intervention for struggling adolescent readers in grades 6-12. The
research-based program captures the attention of adolescent students with
relevant, action-packed expeditions that capture student interest while
accelerating reading achievement and academic performance. Instruction can be
delivered digitally using Edplicity, an advanced cloud-based solution that
creates an interactive online learning community where teachers can assign
student work, track participation and performance, provide targeted feedback,
and collaborate with other teachers and share best practices, all online and
in real-time.

LANGUAGE! 4^th Edition is an intensive, mastery-based language arts
intervention that targets the needs of non-readers, struggling readers, and
English learners. The program is proven to accelerate students to grade-level
proficiency through a sequential, cumulative, skill-based instructional format
that addresses all learning styles. In one study on the impact of LANGUAGE! in
Lee County Public Schools, students in every grade level outperformed the
state as measured by Developmental Scale Score (DSS) gains on the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT).

Both programs meet the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
