Read Live v. Content Update – June 20, 2020

Released June 2020


June 20, 2020:  Content Update 

A major update to Read Naturally Live content is scheduled for early morning on June 20, 2020.

Nearly every story across all levels will be affected by the update. As a result, stories not yet completed at the time of the update will be reset. Progress students have made in unfinished stories will be lost. Please try to have students finish their current story before the update on June 20, 2020. We apologize for this inconvenience. The data for completed stories will not be affected.

Read Naturally is committed to improving our program for you and your students. We are pleased to provide you with this refreshed Read Live content, which includes the following changes:

  • Stories used in the placement process will no longer also be used in the curriculum set for each Sequenced level. New stories in each Sequenced level will replace the ones that were shared with the placement process, as follows:

  • Additional revisions are being made to nearly every story across all levels. Most are minor edits, and others involve larger revisions or whole story replacement, including:
    • "Interesting Orchids" replaces "P. T. Barnum" in Sequenced Level 2.5
