Achieve3000 / SPARK Curriculum Offer Now Available!

Posted on 12/18/2020

The Outreach and Technical Assistance Network (OTAN) has a special offer for your agency!

One of the ways that OTAN supports the field is by negotiating the best free or reduced-cost special offers for online curriculum licenses and professional development resources suggested by our OTAN Advisory Committee and adult educators. Achieve3000 / SPARK is a Common-Core aligned "Literacy Solution" that accelerates Lexile growth for all students and adult learners. It's primarily non-fiction and web-based and used frequently to differentiate grade-level content to allow students to access it at their "just right" reading level. Articles are available at 12 reading levels in English and eight in Spanish.  Many schools are using it for distance learning and to share literacy responsibility across content areas of ELA, Science, and Social Studies.  Spanish language support options are included, along with a Career Center/Job Pulse and Goal Tracker.

If your agency is interested in this offer, please complete this Google Form (https://forms.gle/884URmUwwp3RHtH7A) as soon as possible. Once we have reviewed all the Google Form submissions, we will notify each agency about the number of licenses provided. OTAN will work hard to notify all agencies by January 31, 2021.

Adult learners use the EMPOWER or SPARK version. Here are some videos that describe the program and provide student and teacher views:

This offer is made with no cost to your agency. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to OTAN for assistance – email us at support@otan.us or call us at 916-228-2580.
