System 44: System 44® was designed for our most challenged older, struggling readers (those reading at BR–400 Lexiles in elementary; BR-600 Lexiles in secondary). Intentionally metacognitive, System 44 helps students understand that the English language is a finite system of 44 sounds and 26 letters that can be mastered. The program invites students to unlock this system and join the community of readers. Through a combination of teacher-led and software-based instruction, students are guided along a systematic path from phonemic awareness to fluent reading. Multiple points of entry allow students to work at the appropriate level based on their performance on the Scholastic Phonics Inventory (SPI). Recommended Lexile reading levels: Beginning Reader thru 400/600 (Elementary/Secondary)
