Literacy Improvement 6–12

Struggling readers in grades 6–12 require an instructional approach that provides fundamental early reading skills development in a manner that is engaging and age-appropriate for older students.

Personalized Learning

Lexia's 6–12 literacy solution is built around the specific needs of each struggling reader. The solution utilizes adaptive, personalized learning to help students develop fundamental literacy skills through a range of content covering basic phonological awareness through advanced decoding skills, vocabulary development, and comprehension activities. Based on student responses, the instructional intensity is differentiated to accelerate reading skills development and that real-time data is sent to the teacher, fueling customized skills-based lesson plans based on each student's needs. Using the program's embedded assessment, teachers can focus on personalized instruction without having to stop to administer a test.
