Our coach showed us how to precisely group students based on LightSail’s assessment data and how to unpack short response questions with these groups to target different skills. It really changed my instruction!”

Our coach modeled how to use LightSail’s annotation tools during a conference to record goals within the text that student is reading. This gave both me and my students a new, powerful data point for tracking their progress.
"During my years of teaching, reading was not something that was enjoyed by all. It was difficult to ensure that each of my students were getting books at their level and that all of my students had access to engaging texts.
LightSail brings access to an extensive library of texts, and matches readers to texts right in their zone of proximal development. When students are able to read books that they enjoy and that are going to make them more powerful readers, the results are truly significant.
LightSail's mission to create lifelong readers is evident when I walk into the classrooms of our partner schools."
