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 students to take ownership of their learning

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