Riverdeep Interactive Learning's Destination Reading
Riverdeep Interactive Learning's Destination Readingguides K-3 students through the essential steps of becoming a successful reader. This standards-based program takes students from key emergent literacy concepts through phonemic awareness, phonics, coding and comprehension. The program includes the Riverdeep Learning Management System, which lets educators continually evaluate students and link those evaluations to Destination Reading curricula. Key features of the program include colorful graphics, animation and sound; language skills taught in the context of real language use and applied to real language tasks; reading and writing skill development that builds upon previously learned skills; and both diagnostic and prescriptive assessment with tracking and reporting functions.
