Milestones

Using a unique embedded assessment plan along with a balanced blend of literature and content readings, Milestones ensures that students are mastering skills and standards before being introduced to new skills and standards. This consistent, research-based approach will lead your students to success on state exams as well as to the language acquisition and content knowledge crucial for academic success.

  • Differentiated instruction for every reading selection through adapted readings, point-of-use suggestions, and multi-level questioning strategies ensures access for all students.
  • Embedded assessment helps prevent problems with skills and standards before they occur.
  • Academic vocabulary instruction, practice, and assessment prepare students for success.
  • Complete remediation support through MilestonesTracker and ExamView® provides a standards-aligned review, practice activities, and assessments for all unmastered skills and standards.
