While topics and words are on grade level, passage readability is at a lower level, allowing struggling students to work successfully with the material. The online lessons give students multiple exposures to each word through virtual word cards, a variety of activities, and reading passages. Audio support offers an additional learning tool, providing correct pronunciation and fluent reading.

Administrators and teachers have access to real-time student progress monitoring. The online interactive tool offers a Teacher Resource Area, providing instructional support and strategies, enrichment and extension activities, word cards, and graphic organizers.For more information, visit http://eps.schoolspecialty.com/WWSS.
