Our district has just started using Buzz this year. In the Language Arts courses, the text that students are expected to read is 2 grade levels above their grade level. So, my third graders are greatly struggling understanding the reading because it is at a 5th grade readability level. (I did take the text and copied it into a readability checker). Even when it is read to them, the vocabulary is above their understanding.
My students are frustrated and needing much support in LA. I feel that it's a huge problem with the program that needs to be changed.
