EPS, School Specialty's Literacy and Intervention division, has announced that its bestselling Wordly Wise 3000 will be available online. Wordly Wise 3000 Online will provide all students with the same direct academic vocabulary instruction as the print edition, in a dynamic and interactive online format. Full audio support and immediate feedback make the program ideal for struggling readers and English language learners. Available in May for grades 4-8, Wordly Wise 3000 Online will launch additional grade levels throughout 2012.

Wordly Wise 3000 Online presents the same vocabulary curriculum as the print program. The academic vocabulary taught improves reading comprehension as students learn the words they need for success in grade-level literature, content-area texts and on standardized tests, such as state assessments and the PSAT, SAT and ACT. The Wordly Wise 3000 curriculum is closely aligned with the Common Core State Standards and other individual state standards, as well as the National Council of Teachers of English and the International Reading Association standards.

Students bookend each Wordly Wise 3000 Online lesson with a pre- and post-test to assess gains. They learn new words with virtual word cards, complete a series of engaging activities using the words and word parts in context, read nonfiction passages and do review puzzles. The variety of formats and art promote engagement to ensure and retain mastery.

Wordly Wise 3000 Online's management system provides educators with a convenient dashboard for ease in managing assignments and reports. Student data are captured from pre-test through post-test and throughout the entire program, and are displayed in a variety of easy-to-use reports that facilitate interpretation, progress monitoring and differentiation of instruction. Reports are available for teachers and school administrators, showing individual student gains as well as class-level progress.
