Pedagogy
If a student reads word-for-word he or she will have difficulty understanding what they read. Our program reads to the student in meaning units to model fluency. The text is displayed line-for-line as spoken to focus attention on meaning units, then the student reads alone. Statements inside the passages form questions that are progressively more distant from where the student encountered them in the text. The technique of embedding questions promotes reading for comprehension.

The program also builds vocabulary through pairs of synonymic words to enrich a student's range of expression.

Vocabulary and comprehension
Lessons begin by building vocabulary to understand the article that follows. As the student reads the article, comprehension questions are embedded and gradually moved further from where they are encountered in the article to reduce the effect of memory and shift to true comprehension.

120 lessons
There are six levels each with 20 lessons. They cover reading levels that start at 4th grade 6 months and end at 7th grade. They are progressively more difficult for vocabulary and for the interval between where a comprehension element is presented and when it is tested.

3000 new vocabulary words

Low vocabulary is associated with low reading skill. Fluency and comprehension are served by increasing range of expression. The method ensures that the student must interact with the program to advance the play.
