A Better World
A better world's mission is to uplift underserved youth in West Charlotte from a life of adversity by enriching their physical, mental, and spiritual development.
With a new focus on literacy, A Better World became an i-Ready program partner. i-Ready is a state of the art, online education program that provides students with personalized, interactive lessons to improve their reading skills. i-Ready provides measurable data on student progress, allowing A Better World to verify that students’ reading goals are met and they are on track to be reading on grade level by third grade.
The program is based on North Carolina’s Department of Public Instruction (NC DPI) standards and provides easy to read reports that highlight six main areas: Phonological Awareness, Phonics, High-Frequency Words, Vocabulary, Comprehension-Literature, and Comprehension-Informational Text.
