Innovative ELA Program Recognized for Helping Struggling Readers Succeed
DALLAS, June 21, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Voyager Sopris Learning’s LANGUAGE! Live program has been selected a winner of the 2016 Association of American Publishers (AAP) REVERE Awards. LANGUAGE!® Live, a comprehensive English language arts curriculum for struggling adolescent readers and writers, earned the honor in the “Classroom Supplemental Resources for Learners with Additional Educational Needs” category.
“LANGUAGE! Live is designed to give students the edge they need to be successful, and we’re honored it has been singled out by the AAP,” said Jeffrey A. Elliott, President, Voyager Sopris Learning. “To be recognized for helping struggling readers achieve success validates our mission and inspires us to work even harder toward a day when all students can be proficient readers and writers.”
Celebrating its 50th program year, the REVERE (Recognizing Valuable Educational Resources) Awards identify outstanding educational products that engage today’s teachers and students. The AAP PreK–12 Learning Group is unique to the educational industry in recognizing learning resources in all media, for all ages, and in a wide variety of educational subject areas and learning environments.
Created after nearly two decades of research and developed by internationally renowned literacy experts, LANGUAGE! Live offers a blended learning model that leverages a combination of technology and teacher-guided instruction to empower struggling learners in grades 5–12. The comprehension, fluency, and spelling gains educators and students experience after implementing LANGUAGE!
