Educational publisher Benchmark Education Company (BEC) released Advance ALL, a new series offering literary and informational reading text sets. The program provides dynamic features for striving readers and English Learners (ELs) in grades 2–6+ to help them accelerate to higher reading levels.
In addition to an illustrated leveled text that provides grade-appropriate literary, science and social studies content, each book contains a text at a higher level with extra support to expedite students’ achievement. Appropriate titles also feature a “How Language Works” section, which focuses students on grammar and vocabulary, and then checks their comprehension. Advance ALL incorporates this motivational method with BEC’s signature scaffolding in modern books, available in both print and combination print and digital formats.
Each leveled-book comes with a matching Teacher’s Guide, providing both guided reading and language support for the main text, as well as for the Read to Advance text.
Purchase options include the complete program, grade-level sets, individual topic sets, as well as individual title six-packs to meet specific learning or curriculum needs. The price for the complete program for one school site is $7,625 for print only and $8,325 for print with an online subscription. Individual topic sets can be purchased for as low as $135, and individual title 6-packs can be purchased for as low as $46. For information, visit www.benchmarkeducation.com.
