The Adventures of Scooter McDoogal Reading to Learn Program

Scooter McDoogal is back and is a shining example of a beautifully executed system of combining fun and learning. Parents flipped over this amazing tool for use in home school situations or as a fantastic supplement to the classroom. The system employed here is cartoon illustration and comic book style. The system comes with extensive teaching guides to help make the most out of the lessons included here. Using this system really helps get kids thinking outside the box, not just memorizing facts for tests. The colorful, creative and amusing illustrations really serve to reinforce the lessons which suddenly don’t seem as daunting. Some kids need to connect to learning in different ways and Scooter was clearly relatable to children and thus appreciated by parents. There is an associated website that extends the learning and offers fun games that keep the lessons fresh.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Report Period

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
