Great! My students learn perfectly!

Very helpful when I need to find assessments that measure a student's growth on his/her Individual Educational Plan's (IEP's) reading goals. THANK YOU!

This is the Best, Wonderful site and interesting passages, which is improving English Reading Comprehension skill and general knowledge & vocabulary also

Wonderful site and interesting passages!

This is a good resource for Intensive Reading Classes, provides practice in areas of concerns.

The best site ever!!!

Love this site!!!

This is the best website!!!!!!

i love the website

This website is the best. I use the passages in my classroom and for my Georgia Alternative Assessments. The lexile scores are graduated .I can increase the difficulty of the passages and know the lexile scores that I'm using.These passages cover the skills I need to use in my classroom. Thank you for this great website.

Great!!

Perfect for my ESOL students. Both at Middle and High school.

I just signed up. I am looking forward to using these passages for my 7/8th grade ELL students

Yes, I agree. I also teach a High School Equivalency class. Most of the students are 7th or 8th grade level readers who struggle with reading comprehension skills. These readings are perfect because they practice critical thinking skills, comprehension, vocabulary and evidence based responses.

I agree with you.This website is my answer to teaching my self contained classroom. The lexile scores being provided are a great way for me to see the progress my students are making.

This is the best site. I teach Adult Education, and most of my students left school because of their reading abilities. They can read, but the class does not understand how to look at passages and find support for their arguments. This is exactly what the GED test wants them to do in writing prompts. Your site is helping me prepare these adults for a new, great future. Thanks!
