Independent reading is an essential practice
“There’s no such thing as a kid who hates reading. There are just kids who love reading, and kids who are reading the wrong books. We need to help them find the right books.” –
James Patterson, award-winning novelist and founder of Read Kiddo Read.
Your pupils’ personalised bookshelf provides access to thousands of authentic and diverse stories and non-fiction texts that they will want to read. Literacy Pro’s™ proprietary smart engine keeps each pupil’s bookshelf refreshed with books that they can read with enjoyment and deep comprehension.
Many of these titles can be found in Literacy Pro’s™ online library which uses the unique Library Match feature to identify books in your school library that pupils will enjoy. Literacy Pro™ ensures that every pupil gets the right books into their hands every time.
Using embedded Read & Think questions, Interactive Read-Aloud lesson plans and other resources, you can scaffold and support pupils’ independent reading skills to encourage deep comprehension.
There are 999 books in Literacy Pro’s™ eLibrary – 240 include Interactive Read-Aloud and 306 are enhanced with Read & Think scaffolds to help pupils on their reading journey by modelling and supporting behaviours of successful, confident readers. Lesson plans, downloadable worksheets, and activity ideas offer further support for beginner readers.
Model effective reading behaviours by using point-of-use teacher resources to carry out engaging Interactive Read-Aloud lessons. Featuring embedded lesson plans and worksheets, Literacy Pro’s™ Interactive Read-Aloud resources capture the interest of all readers, and they’re perfect for whole class or small group discussions.
Mastering the process of reading
Reading goes beyond simply decoding words on a page. It is a process that requires active engagement with the text, enabling comprehension and facilitating effective communication.
Pupils can develop effective comprehension skills by using the 15,000+ quizzes that cover thousands of bestselling books from Scholastic and other publishers. These quizzes provide them with the opportunity to think about what they’ve read and demonstrate their understanding of the text.
Literacy Pro™ provides point-of-use opportunities for pupils to communicate their ideas and views through a variety of different channels. They can talk to their teacher through our embedded teacher-pupil eBook messaging feature, express their opinion by writing book reviews, and award star ratings which can inform the reading choices of their peers.
Supporting every pupil’s progress towards reading success
Scholastic Literacy Pro™ makes it easy to measure pupils’ reading comprehension, monitor their progress towards specific achievement goals, and motivate them to hit their reading targets.
Measure your pupils’ reading progress and comprehension with accurate, easy-to-use assessments that identify reading ability, skills, and growth through a suite of reports.
The LitPro Test provides an objective and independent measure of reading progress against customised benchmarks, individual goals, and normative data. Literacy Pro’s™ reading skills assessment measures pupils’ competency across 10 key comprehension skills including summarisation, comparison, and contrast.
Monitor pupils’ reading progress using data-driven reports and dashboards. Literacy Pro™ offers a seamless experience that allows you to assess, assign, track, and monitor your pupils’ progress, all on one easy-to-use platform.
Real-time alerts on the administrator, teacher, and learner dashboards are co-designed with educators to help you understand each pupil individually so you can tailor your support to suit them.
