1000+ STUDENTS. EXCITING RESULTS.
The impact of R.E.A.L.® is stunningly consistent across schools, subjects and grades.
Since all students deserve discussion skills, R.E.A.L.® has intentionally begun in a broad range of schools.
The R.E.A.L.® approach to Discussion as a Discipline has proven effective across grades, subjects, and school cultures. Its mastery model has been used with students grades 6-11, subjects including History, English, Religion and Humanities, and in independent, international, and charter schools. Across all of these contexts, teachers report that R.E.A.L.® makes discussion “more equitable,” “more rigorous,” and “easier to assess.” The student results speak for themselves!

is for RELATE
is for EXCERPT
“I think REAL discussions serve as a draft for analytical writing, especially in how we use quotes, and they are a great place to speak your ideas and see how your peers react to it; similar to a band testing out songs at a concert before they release the studio version.”
– 9th grader
is for ASK
“REAL has made me conscious that I have started to ask more questions to move the discussion along, rather than just relating to my classmates. I think that this is a vital discussion (and honestly life) skill and I’m still working on it, but I have definitely improved.”
