One in nine adult Americans struggle with employment outcomes as well as personal and social well-being – all because of low literacy skills. LightSail is dedicated to turning students into readers who will become engaged global citizens in the 21st Century.
So, in 2012 we got a group of the brightest minds in education together to create the world’s best literacy solution. We knew a few key things from our experience in the classroom:
• Students grow faster when engaged and challenged by an abundance of just right texts
• Students are motivated by understanding their own progress data
• Educators can do more with better progress monitoring
