Educators from all over the world have found great success in helping
students excel in reading and learning in all subject areas.

“Students engage in collaborative conversations because they all read about the same topics. This can lead to an increase in transferable skills across all texts and content areas. This is exactly what we want—for our students to understand the power of literacy as currency.”

Dr. Shelmon Brown, K-12 Literacy and Language Arts Facilitator, Colorado Springs School District 11, CO

“Some students who have Lexiles of 1100 and some with 800 are in the same class. It’s hard for a teacher to differentiate that many different types of articles for every student in the class. With Achieve3000, the kids with higher Lexile measures are challenged more with critical thinking, while those with lower Lexiles are challenged at their own level.”

Lorra Tanner, Elementary School Teacher, Geary Elementary, WV

“I used to be afraid to read because people would think I was a slow reader and now I’m not afraid to read anymore.”
