Take A Closer Look at LANGUAGE!

Who Benefits from LANGUAGE!?

  • Students needing to acquire knowledge of academic language

Who Benefits from LANGUAGE!?

LANGUAGE! integrates reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary, grammar, foundational skills, and spoken English. The entire curriculum weaves all of the necessary strands of literacy into six instructional steps of a daily lesson. Its parallel curriculum, LANGUAGE! Focus on English Learning® is specifically designed for English learners and includes a seventh step, Step 0, that frontloads key vocabulary and language arts concepts with preteach lessons before Step 1.

LANGUAGE! Steps 0-6

"We are excited about the results we are seeing using LANGUAGE! with our students requiring a replacement curriculum. When the teachers are well-trained in the program and fully implement it with fidelity, the results are well beyond our expectations."

—Judith S. Carmona
Intervention Instructional Specialist

Predictable Learning Routines

LANGUAGE! activates the four language processors in the brain. Each processor contributes to reading and writing in:

  1. Context
  2. Meaning
  3. Phonological awareness
  4. Orthographic (letter and letter-pattern recognition)

The instructional model includes multisensory lessons that activate all four processors for effective learning to take place in a synchronistic approach. The six-step sequential and scaffolded lessons aim to educate all of the processing systems and enable them to work together.

You'll know when learning is happening because your students will say,
"I get it now...I can read."

Teacher Implementation Training

Watch this demo that includes Step Zero from LANGUAGE! Focus on English Learning, "Speaking and Listening to the English Language," to see how each step in the process is taught. The sequence of steps is important to follow to ensure students become proficient readers. Soon, you'll understand why "Zip, don't skip," and "As quickly as you can, and as slowly as you must" are key phrases you will hear in your implementation training.
