How Does SmartLearning Technology Improve the Fast ForWord Intervention Program?

  • More engaging, more adaptive, and more motivating: students move more quickly through content they have mastered so they can focus on the skills they need most.
  • Built-in interventions and help: the program now automatically helps students work through the most challenging exercises, freeing up teachers and coaches to do what they do best: teach.
  • New reports and lesson plans: you’ll be able to pinpoint specific strengths/weaknesses in English language arts, and use new lesson plans that align to classroom instruction!
  • Now addresses 5 domains of reading: now with Reading Assistant Plus included in all k-12 subscriptions, Fast ForWord’s 3-step approach covers all domains of reading (phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension).
