    Support for Struggling Readers

    System 44 is a reading and phonics program designed for our most challenged, readers in Grades 3–12+. Many of these students are not motivated in school. System 44 helps students understand that the English language is a finite system of 44 sounds and 26 letters that can be mastered. The program invites students to “crack the code” and join the community of readers, and provides educators with a comprehensive set of tools to meet this challenge. 
     
    The heart of System 44 is adaptive software that delivers direct, explicit, research-based phonics instruction. In order to move students through the program as quickly as possible, students are placed in the appropriate level based on their performance on the Scholastic Phonics Inventory (SPI). Once placed, students work independently in the software for 20 minutes, which is continuously and automatically collecting data on student performance and adjusting accordingly.  Students then work 20 minutes for small group teacher instruction.
