From One of Our Customers:
I have used the Weaver program for the last ten years at South Plains College in Levelland, Texas.
The program is utilized as a tool for vocabulary enrichment and comprehension skills.
The class syllabi includes: 20 lessons per week plus 10 extra lesson for bonus grade. Another program incentive allows the students to repeat any lesson until they make a score of 75 on that skill. Thus, the power of re-teaching and reinforcing a needed reading skill is another plus of this program.
Accountability results reveal the majority of the students who complete the program increase their reading level by at least 3 years in just one semester using this program.
