Scientific Learning Releases New Resources For English Learners

To help teachers provide targeted support, Scientific Learning has released the Build English Fast Offline Resources for English Learners.

Offline Resources

The Build English Fast solution is a combination of Fast ForWord® intervention for English language development, and Reading Assistant™, which uses speech recognition technology to listen to ELLs as they read aloud. The combination addresses three critical steps for English language proficiency: preparing the brain to “hear” the sounds of English; providing intensive practice in English vocabulary, grammar and reading skills; and giving students the opportunity to practice speaking and reading aloud with real-time corrective feedback.

The core of the resources are individual, leveled lessons that supplement the Fast ForWord and Reading Assistant programs. The lessons are based on the SIOP® Model, with added differentiation for the Fast ForWord exercises.
