International and national assessments show that too many U.S. students struggle with understanding nonfiction text. In a competitive global economy, ignoring the root causes of the problem and simply “watering down” content for students who struggle, just widens the achievement gap and is a great disservice to these students. Readorium’s mission is to help all students become confident, competent, and motivated readers who are passionate about science. Readorium’s online programs meet this challenge by teaching 3rd-8th grade students transferable strategies and word-learning skills needed to comprehend all nonfiction and by providing text and supports that automatically adapt to their needs.
