Sebastopol, CA. (3/17/2009) - Students from up to 100 schools will receive free online vocabulary and spelling coaching for the months of June, July and August of 2009, along with the chance to win their school’s “spell-a-thon” and raise funds.
The summer activity is provided by eSpindle Learning. The nonprofit organization’s award-winning website, www.LearnThatWord.org, provides customized vocabulary and spelling tutoring online.
LearnThatWord tailors each learning session to the needs of the individual student, drawing on a database of 150,000 words. The website provides detailed reporting, so teachers can review their students’ efforts with one click.
By staging a “spell-a-thon” schools honor the students who studied the largest number of words during these three months. LearnThatWord’s built-in reporting tools determine the winner. Students can form teams to see who is in the lead via constantly updated reports.
Personalized certificates boost motivation as students graduate from level to level. Since LearnThatWord provides 100% targeted practice, even a 3-month license produces significant results.
Only condition for participating:
Schools need to make the offer available to all students, and place a link to www.LearnThatWord.org on their school’s website.
Unlimited support and professional development are provided and LearnThatWord Learning will create print-ready flyers to send home with the students.
