Read Naturally Software Edition

The Read Naturally Software Edition features the same reading strategy and stories used in the Masters Edition, while taking advantage of the benefits and functionality of the computer. The Software Edition automates the placement process, assigns an appropriate reading goal, and allows you to customize the program by accelerating or skipping steps for advanced readers. It also creates detailed reports that track student progress and indicate areas that need additional coaching. SE guides students through the steps of the program with on-screen prompts, synchronizes professional audio recordings of the stories with on-screen text, provides vocabulary-building features, pictures, animations, and sound, and automatically calculates reading and quiz answer scores.
