Parallel Universe Old

The Third Quest's
Parallel Universe Season 1

A reading intervention for struggling adolescents (5th through 12th grade) and adults.

Explore The Parallel Universe

The Third Quest’s Parallel Universe, Season 1 is a reading intervention for students in grades 5 through high school—
and also adults who haven’t mastered reading well enough to access sophisticated text with confidence.
Lessons explicitly teach foundational word recognition skills, vocabulary, oral reading fluency, comprehension, and content knowledge.
Narrative fiction that features a mysterious vortex takes students into the ancient past.
Along the way, informational text passages engage students in related science and social studies content.
The School Edition and Home Edition offer two unique formats for becoming a stronger reader.

School Edition

The School Edition ($350) includes a license that allows a school to set up multiple users for one-to-one tutorials or small group instruction. The license provides 12 months of access to video lessons and can be used by anyone working with a student from the school. Tutors and staff members need a Coach’s Manual ($45), and each student need a consumable Student Logbook ($45).

Home Edition

The Home Edition ($295) allows family members to work with their own children in a reading intervention that can be supported by adults who are not reading specialists. A 6-month video subscription, Coach’s Manual, and Student Logbook provide everything that is needed to move an adolescent struggling reader toward greater confidence and stronger reading skills.
