Which students benefit from Speak Agent?
All learners can benefit from Speak Agent! Academic language is no one's home language. Strong content language skills are needed in all math and science content areas for evaluating information, expressing logical reasoning, explaining solution steps, arguing from evidence, communicating conclusions—language is embedded in all of the math and science practices!

Students learn using research-based instructional strategies that support Speak Agent's academic language learning model. Our programs support independent practice, teacher-led instruction, and small group work.
