Action Areas Tool

Action Areas tool

Empowering teachers with immediate, actionable data

The new Action Areas tool enables teachers to help the students who need it most. Teachers are able to quickly identify students who need help, and pinpoint the skills that are giving them trouble. And by selecting the Skill Groups tab, teachers can group students by skill, giving them instant intervention groups. And it doesn’t stop there—the Action Areas tool immediately supplies teachers with useful information, such as Common Core alignments and resources to use for intervention. Imagine Learning activities can be launched right from the Intervention Tools panel, giving instant access to a wealth of content that can be used for guided practice. Supporting worksheets can be printed for small-group instruction or given to students for practice at home. The Action Areas tool can also be accessed on iPad and Android tablets, facilitating teacher-led intervention groups using the Imagine Learning iPad app.

  • Instant data = instant intervention
    • instant intervention groups with resources
    • Common Core alignments
    • Tablet accessible for teacher-led remediation

Research-Based Instruction

Research-Based Instruction

Your students need content that’s as individualized as they are.

Because every child has different learning needs, a one-size-fits-all approach leaves many needs unfulfilled. Fortunately, Imagine Learning personalizes the experience by providing systematic instruction that adapts to each student’s needs. For example, the program helps students build literacy skills in a logical manner: first they learn letters, then they learn words. The activities break down skills into their component parts and organize them into little segments—such as teaching kids about sound before teaching letters. Along with this systematic instruction, the program also provides instructive feedback that directs students to apply a strategy they have been taught, or to re-read a section of a book to look for an answer. With checkpoints that determine how a student receives instruction or if they even need it, Imagine Learning individualizes the student experience. This level of detail means that teachers can spend their time where it matters most: teaching.

  • A differentiated approach
    • explicit, targeted instruction
    • instructive feedback
    • ongoing placement
English Language Learner Support

English Language Learner Support

Don’t just be on the same page—speak the same language.

Imagine Learning provides strategic first-language support in 15 languages to facilitate and enhance ELL learning. As students become more proficient in English, this language support gradually fades, preparing students for English-only environments. In addition to strategic translations, the program also uses peer modeling to illustrate concepts more clearly. Same-age peers explain what words and phrases mean in rich, contextualized examples. By seeing real kids use key vocabulary in real-life settings, ELLs are more engaged, enabling them to understand each concept more fully. Imagine Learning also provides scaffolded practice—with front-loaded vocabulary, graphic organizers, and clickable glossary words with translations—to support English language learners every step of the way.

Literacy Instruction

Literacy Instruction

Illuminating literacy so every child’s future is bright.

Acquiring literacy is a step-by-step process. To help students get from point A to Z, Imagine Learning incorporates the five essential components of reading: phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. In addition, students are directly taught reading strategies and then are guided as they read literature and informational text adapted to their skill level. When answering common comprehension questions, students receive immediate, instructive feedback. This literacy instruction helps students throughout the school day—reading passages on math, science, and history not only engages students, but increases their background knowledge base. And instruction on using text features enables students to use their texts more fully.

  • Steps to success
    • direct reading-strategies instruction
    • differentiated reading passages
    • e-text support, in-text glossaries

Common Core Standards

Common Core Standards

We have one standard: to keep raising the bar.

Because Imagine Learning is built specifically to address Common Core state standards, students are immediately introduced to a diverse array of critical content that will prepare them for the demands of college and career-level reading. The program features over 500 engaging activities that target the Common Core categories of Informational Text, Foundational Skills, Literature, and Language while engaging with a variety of texts. With this kind of exposure to literature and direct instruction in reading, speaking, and listening skills, students are better equipped to succeed in life outside of the classroom.

Language Development

Language Development

In educational terminology, our language instruction spells success.

To develop critical language skills, Imagine Learning focuses on basic vocabulary, academic language, and grammar. Without comprehension, reading is just saying words. Using meaningful and varied instructional strategies, Imagine Learning helps students not only understand individual words, but also increases the comprehensibility of the entire text. Through sound instruction, Imagine Learning nurtures and bolsters a child's ability to effectively communicate with the world around them. In other words—it makes them better students now and better leaders in the years to come. The program also teaches kids hundreds of words that they will encounter in language arts, science, math, and social studies, helping them bridge the gap between the two most important areas of their lives: the playground and the classroom.

Assessments & Reports

Assessments & Reports

The curriculum they need? Check. The data you need? Check.

Through our smart sequencer, students receive exactly the curriculum they need. When students begin the program, they’re guided through a series of questions to assess their current developmental level. The initial placement considers literacy and language abilities and then assigns each student the appropriate content. Along the way, students are constantly evaluated to determine what type of instruction they’ll receive and how much support they need. This continual assessment ensures students are consistently on track and have a personalized experience.

Imagine Learning provides detailed reporting, including data on student progress and skills students have mastered. Customized reports can be generated for parents, teachers, and district administrators. Teachers are also supported by an interactive data portfolio which provides valuable information for effective, targeted student intervention. The Action Areas tool pinpoints which skills students are struggling with and provides focused intervention printouts and activities. The new Growth Reporting tool offers a historical view of student growth compared to similar students within a desired progression range. And third-party Scantron® Performance Series® assessments provide reliable growth measures to evaluate student performance and inform instruction.

Support & Training

Support & Training

A helping hand when you need it the most.

At Imagine Learning, our software is only part of our solution-driven mission. We know that to have a positive impact on students’ lives, the program must run smoothly and those who manage it on a daily basis must be properly trained and have all the support they need. When we enter into a partnership with a school, we hold a training session for all the teachers, coaches, and aides who will be working with Imagine Learning on a daily basis. We’ve even prepared Site Expert kits that explain how to champion the Imagine Learning program at school. These chosen Site Experts ensure that all licenses are assigned, reports are generated, and that student usage is increased. Additionally, a live representative is just a phone call away to answer questions or resolve concerns. Our support staff is happy to fix any issues that may arise, whether by remote access or in person.
