How do they do it?
Over 100,000 Resources from Major Publishing Powerhouses
LightSail students explore personalized libraries from respected publishers like World Book and Lerner Publishing along with Classics and content to fit all homeschooling styles, including Classical, Charlotte Mason, and Faith-Based. Filled with over 100,000 books, audiobooks, and multimedia resources, including interactive texts, videos, augmented reality, and livestreams, all of LightSail’s content is specially-curated by experts to meet literacy goals and homeschooling needs.
Real-Time Data that Adjusts Content
LightSail parents get real-time access to meaningful data about their children’s reading and writing trends, comprehension, and growth that allows them to guide, create, and enhance the learning experience. Records of activities and assessments are stored on the site for easy access and review of progress at any point during the educational journey, from PreK to 12th grade. In addition, the platform also uses the content to adjust reading levels and continually recommend “just-right” content for each student.
Lexile measures students’ reading levels, allowing LightSail to continually offer students “just-right” books while parents prescribe the best content with LightSails exclusive content controls. LightSail’s award-winning program embeds in-text assessments, creating an interactive learning experience. This scaffolded approach motivates students to increase both their reading volume and the difficulty of the texts they choose.
