Fast ForWord Reading Level 5

Reading Comprehension & Critical Thinking

Fast ForWord Reading Level 5 works on advanced reading comprehension and vocabulary skills for students in middle and high school and for adults.

Fast ForWord Reading Level 5 was recently awarded a new patent for developing critical thinking skills as required by the Common Core State Standards. The program builds reading comprehension and vocabulary skills for all ages. It is often difficult to complete due to the complexity of content in the latter stages.

Fast ForWord Reading Level 5 has five exercises.
