Savvas Learning Company | June 02, 2022
Pioneer of next gen digital solutions provider for K-12 learners and educators, Savvas Learning Company announced a new addition to its K-5 curriculum called myView Literacy. The program will now consist of a brand new interactive program that is based on the modern Science of Reading research and enabled students to build reading comprehension.
"The ability to read, and read well, is critical for all aspects of life, yet so many students struggle with literacy proficiency, especially given the challenges of pandemic-related disruptions in education. At Savvas, we are committed to developing literacy solutions that provide teachers with engaging literature and targeted instruction, helping to ensure that all students have the opportunity to reach their full potential."
- Bethlam Forsa, CEO of Savvas Learning Company
MyView enables teachers with the resources they need to inspire the love of reading. It also helps them improve their writing abilities and provides young writers the assistance they need to succeed.
"What I appreciate about teaching withmyView Literacyis that the lessons are detailed and organized, and provide the right amount of guidance and examples for how to teach the concept. My students love nonfiction text and learning about real people in history. With the units inmyView Literacygrouped by genre type — and an equal amount of nonfiction and fiction within the materials — my students can identify the characteristics of each genre more than they could ever before. The stories are so engaging, and my students have enjoyed every story that we have read this year. They can't wait to see what we are going to read this week!"
- Cindy Ventresca, a first-grade teacher at Gayman Elementary School, Central Bucks
