Lexia PowerUp Literacy

Lexia® PowerUp Literacy® is designed to help struggling and nearly-proficient readers in grades 6–12 become proficient readers and confident learners. PowerUp helps educators simultaneously address gaps in fundamental literacy skills while helping students build the higher-order skills they need to comprehend, analyze, evaluate, and compare increasingly complex literary and informational texts. Blending online student-driven explicit instruction with offline teacher-delivered lessons and activities, PowerUp empowers secondary teachers—regardless of their background or expertise in reading—to deliver the exact instruction each student needs to become a proficient reader. 

  • Address the instructional needs of a wide range of reader profiles

  • Engage, challenge, and motivate adolescent students to take ownership of their learning

  • Help students develop the skills they need to succeed in content-area classes

"Because we chose to screen all of our students with RAPID, not just those students we felt needed support, we discovered that our entire middle school population lacked proficiency in grammar, one of the three instructional strands addressed by PowerUp.

—  Nancy Talley, Director of Curriculum, River Valley Local School District, Caledonia, OH
