Exercise Overview

Exercise Overview Progression Road Trip varies two factions to make the task progressively more difficult: • Vocabulary grade level • Word group K - 3rd Grade Vocabulary Word Group Grade Level Questions Basic Words Kindergarten Grade 1 Grade 2 Grade 3 10 10 10 10 2nd - 5th Grade Vocabulary Compound Words Grade 2 Grade 3 Grade 4 Grade 5 10 10 10 10 Prefixes Grade 2 Grade 3 Grade 4 Grade 5 Homophones Grade 2 Grade 3 Grade 4 Grade 5 Near Misses Grade 2 Grade 3 Grade 4 Grade 5 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 38 24 28 20 4th - 7th Grade Vocabulary Academic Words Grade 4 Grade 5 Grade 6 Grade 7 10 10 10 10 Students work on all six word groups in order. For example, students begin with Basic Words / Kindergarten vocabulary, then progress to Compound Words / 2nd grade vocabulary, and so on. To complete a word group at a given grade level, students must answer 90% of the questions correctly. While working on the exercise, the student may repeat some groups in a grade level, while beginning a new group in another grade level. Road Trip adapts to the student’s performance and provides targeted interventions if the student is struggling. 60 Road Trip Teacher Manual

Exercise Overview Motivational Levels After each 20% of progress through the exercise, students “level up” and the screen changes slightly. These motivational levels are not connected to specific content. Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4 Level 5 Targeted Practice This exercise uses built-in, responsive technology to detect when a student is struggling and administer targeted, inline instruction—right when the student needs it—without any external resources or assistance required. This helps reduce frustration as it quickly gets the student back on track, so they can continue making progress. One type of intervention, the Elimination Process, provides specific instruction on how to approach the content with which the student is struggling. It shows the student an incomplete sentence, and guides the student through eliminating 3 of the 4 possible answers, step by step. If you are not sure which word is correct, use the process of elimination to reject the incorrect ones. In this example, we can reject the words "chalkboard" and "chalkboards" because those are things you see in a classroom, not on a road trip... Road Trip Teacher Manual 61
