Program Overview

Imagine Language & Literacy is a program that can be used throughout the entire school year to help students reading at a PreK - 6th grade level progress through literacy, oral vocabulary, and grammar lessons on their own individualized pathway. Below are some helpful tips for implementing the program, along with the appropriate resources to assist you in using it with your students.

NEW Galileo Benchmark Assessments

We are excited to announce the addition of the Galileo K-12 Benchmark, the newest member in the Imagine Learning product family. Galileo is our new assessment program and offers universal screeners, progress monitoring, and predictive capabilities that provide you with an idea of how well students will perform on state assessments. At the beginning of the 2019-20 school year, Imagine Language & Literacy benchmarks will be delivered using Galileo’s assessments and scoring system. Please take a moment to watch this teacher video about Galileo before administering the benchmark to your students. We also have student videos in Imagine Learning University with students modeling the assessment process that you can show your students before they begin.

Usage

We recommend that students use the program 3-5 times per week. Session times vary by grade level (Pre-K – K: 10-15 minutes, Grades 1-2: 20 minutes, Grades 3+: 25 minutes). This can be a combination of in-school and at-home work. Student sessions times are set by default to 20 minutes.

Monitoring

Teachers should be checking reports weekly to see who is on track, and intervene with students who are struggling.The Action Areas tool is a great resource to help target instruction by providing small groups of struggling students categorized by curriculum area skill, as well as appropriate resources and activities to use as interventions. This is a great feature to know about, be sure to check it out!

Motivation

Motivation is key to success in Imagine Language & Literacy! Please consider a motivation contest or activity to push students toward success. For more information on our built-in motivation, Imagine Museum, please read this article.
