A research-based intervention designed for adolescents reading two or more years below grade level.

The Expedition Literacy workshops introduce you to a sequence of four different reading interventions designed to give struggling readers in grades 6 - 12 the literacy skills they need to be successful in high school, college or career.

The Expedition Literacy curricula has been developed for replication in a variety of academic environments and has proven efficacy with regular education, special education and English language learners. A curriculum kit has been developed for each of the four Expedition Literacy courses, and each kit includes the instructions and materials needed to set up and facilitate a successful classroom, two include web-based software to accompany the courses.

This program is ideal for educators in reading intervention and support programs who assist students reading two or more years below their grade level.
