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.

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
