Boost Reading in Action
Boost Reading (formerly Amplify Reading) immerses students in an engaging game world while delivering the skills practice and supports they need to become proficient readers. While students are making progress in the game world and receiving personalized feedback, teachers receive meaningful data to track their growth.
Inside the Classroom
Engaging, personalized learning
Using the science behind engagement and motivation, we built Boost Reading to deliver compelling narrative experiences where progress in the storyline is mapped to reading growth, helping students understand the value of effort and practice.
What teachers and students say about Boost Reading
“When I’m using Boost Reading, I feel as if I’m not even reading, I feel as if I’m playing a game. It’s a whole new world,” said one Boost Reading student. To hear from real teachers and students about their experiences with Boost Reading, watch the video on the left.
It’s not just about learning to read, but loving to read. It’s why we designed Boost Reading to allow students to develop their language and decoding skills within immersive story worlds that grow as they progress through them, fostering a growth mindset.
Students embark on personalized journeys that match their profiles to a comprehensive range of skills—from foundational skills, to comprehension, to close reading. Boost Reading digests every decision students make to serve up the right skills at the right time.

What teachers say
“I usually don’t like reading a lot but, this was fun and exciting. How it was able to teach me more than I already know. I didn’t expect it to be this fun!”
