"I had 82 students pass the ACT, CLT, or FAST Assessments first semester. I attribute the score improvement to the grammar instruction through Applerouth. I'm using the Applerouth book for small group instruction followed by the lessons on the computer. I've been teaching 11th and 12th grade reading for 15 years, and I feel Applerouth is making a big difference with the students in my classes."
