Turning the Reading Guide On or Off

For any of the story-timing steps, students whose workstation has a mouse or other pointing device can use a reading guide to help them track words as they read each line of text. The guide highlights one line of text at a time as a student moves the cursor over the story.

Students can choose to turn the guide on or off before each story timing. During a timing, students cannot turn the reading guide on or off.

To control the reading guide on the Cold Timing, Practice, Pass/More Practice or Pass/Hot Timing steps:

  1. If the reading guide is on, click Reading Guide On/Off to turn it off.
  2. To turn the reading guide back on, click Reading Guide On/Off again.
  3. When the reading guide is on, move it over the story text to highlight one line at a time.

Important Note:

  • The reading guide is not available on touch-screen devices like iPads.
