Help them Succeed with Stride Academy. Immediate, Affordable and Personalized Support for Migrant Students.
This year, 50,000 migrant students will enter U.S. schools facing major challenges. The Stride Academy online adaptive learning platform can help:
- Overcome language challenges: Spanish and Simplified English translations of our Math and Reading curriculum (aligned to your state standards) support English Language Learners.
- Immediately assess learning abilities: Take away the guesswork by quickly identifying what migrant students already know, and exactly where they need to begin remediating and growing skills in each subject area.
- Build self-confidence in an unfamiliar environment: Continuous positive feedback and game-based rewards such as badges provide reinforcement and motivation.
Spanish and Simplified English Translations of Math and Reading Curriculum (PreK-Grade 8)
Our Spanish translations allow migrant students who speak little to no English the opportunity to begin immediately working on Math and Reading curriculum. Behind the scenes, their skill abilities are assessed and helpful data reports are instantly generated to inform teachers of their strengths and weaknesses.
“See Question in English”: Clicking this button in the top right corner allows English Language Learners to quickly toggle between the Spanish translation and English.
English Language Learners have the burden of learning English at the same time that they are expected to learn subject matter content. ELLs can gradually work their way from using the Spanish translations toward using our Simplified English translations, which replace seemingly complex English terms with words that are likely to be familiar to ELLs. This allows them to more easily grasp the concepts being taught:
Ease of navigation even for technology novices.
While technology may be new to many migrant students, Stride Academy is easy to navigate using only a mouse, or by touch on a trackpad, to click through content and select answers. Bold graphics and illustrations assist ELLs in navigating the program and understanding the content.
