  • Imagine Language & Literacy - Imagine Learning

    Imagine Language & Literacy is an adaptive learning solution that accelerates literacy AND language development for each student in grades PreK–6. Every student has unique strengths and opportunities to grow. After an initial assessment of your choice, Imagine Language & Literacy serves students with a learning sequence designed just for them. The learning sequence adjusts dynamically as students explore and practice in the game-like environment, accelerating to match a cognitive leap or detouring to accommodate unfinished (or interrupted) learning. As the name implies, both English language skills and literacy skills are developed in tandem, so students only need one program to elevate learning across the four domains—reading, writing, listening, and speaking. That’s our secret for success: literacy and language are just better together. Other programs currently on the market may target only literacy or only language development. Literacy programs have a small positive effect on language proficiency, and language proficiency programs have a small positive effect on literacy; however, Imagine Language & Literacy was specifically designed to provide systematic and explicit instruction in both language and literacy. Language & Literacy’s uniquely combined approach, emphasis on building academic language explicitly, and first language support in 15 languages has proven to accelerate student mastery of skills that empower them to unlock learning across all subject areas. Imagine Language & Literacy is built for flexibility, enabling educators to make the program work for them— in whole-class, small-group, and one-on-one literacy instruction delivered virtually, in-person, or in blended models. Designed to complement any core literacy system, Imagine Language & Literacy invites educators to define their level of involvement to improve learning outcomes. Teachers may opt to track growth through performance data or to dive in and further differentiate instruction through custom activity playlists and printable resources. And the results with Imagine Language & Literacy speak for themselves. Research shows that students are 2x times more likely to outperform their peers on states tests with Language & Literacy, and English Language Learners outperform their peers on the WIDA ACCESS 2.0 by 38%.
