Online reading instruction and practice platform designed to build capacity, stamina, and motivation


Reading Plus is an online reading support curriculum for students. It allows students to read interdisciplinary informational or literary texts and receive specialized academic vocabulary and reading comprehension instruction while teachers monitor their progress and performance. It is available for purchase at a per school, annual rate.


All users begin using Reading Plus by setting up an account and logging in. After logging in for the first time, students answer questions to complete an assessment of their capacity, efficiency, and motivation for reading. After they have completed the assessment, they chose a Lexile level appropriate text from Reading Plus’ online library. They select each passage by desired topic or theme such as ‘Personal Journey,’ ‘Heroes and Trailblazers,’ ‘Get in the Game,’ or ‘How Things Work.’ Before students read the text they are presented with text-related academic vocabulary through a series of interactive questions. After reading the text, students answer reading comprehension questions and complete a writing exercise by responding to writing prompts. Struggling students can use the ‘Guided Window’ tool to help highlight areas of key importance while reading the text and completing comprehension activities.

Once logged in, teacher users select their ‘Educator Dashboard’ to view reporting graphics of student progress and performance on comprehension questions. Based off of this student performance, Reading Plus generates a list of recommended actions for teachers to take in class for each individual student. Via the messaging tool, teachers can message students while they are using Reading Plus.


Reading Plus can be purchased for an annual license. The price varies based on the number of students using the program as well as the length of the purchase. This price ranges from about $10/student to about $65/student per year. Professional development for non-student users is purchased separately and varies based on the state in which the school resides.
