Students can avoid the oft-cited summer slide and even advance proficiency
For the third year, Learning Upgrade is offering complimentary “Summer School” access to its web-based Common Core-aligned curriculum to all qualifying U.S. schools and districts.
Through the incorporation of songs, video, games, and extensive educational research, Learning Upgrade helps students reach and exceed grade level requirements in both math and English/language arts. The complimentary summer licenses provide users full access to all of Learning Upgrade’s K-8 courses, including the newly released Math Upgrade 6 Common Core lessons.
Learning Upgrade’s platform provides students with immediate feedback, as well as additional support and remediation when and where students need it. Once a student has demonstrated mastery of a given skill, they are automatically advanced to the next lesson.
Research from the National Summer Learning Association shows that, without refreshing their memories, students may lose up to two months of grade-level equivalency over the summer.
Many summer school participants use Learning Upgrade courses to ensure new, incoming students are prepared for the upcoming school year. Middle schools use the company’s Math Upgrade 5 courses to ensure incoming sixth graders are at or above grade level by the start of school. Reports provide teachers with insight into each student’s gaps and needs for additional support.
Each web-based course can be used within a summer school setting or at home. The platform allows teachers to quickly and easily track individual student progress over the summer and provide immediate feedback to parents and students through web-based reports.
