My name is Cindy Benson and I teach English Language Learners in Fargo, North Dakota. I have been using System 44 with high school ELL students this semester. I have been very pleased with the program. My students love it, and seem to making progress. Many have lived in the U.S. for several years or more and have good command of spoken English, but were still struggling with reading. We have needed something like this for a long time. This program is really helping them to "crack the code." The software is amazing; they like the books in the library and seem to like the System 44 and decodable digests books as well. I like that the students work at their own level and pace. The support from the teachers manual and the SAM resources have been a great to help me with both large group and small group instruction. I am not a trained reading specialist, but System 44 has turned me into a reading teacher.
