Explicit instruction in phonics and phonological awareness, high-frequency words, reading decodable and authentic texts.
15-25 sessions per module
Moving students up levels of text complexity by strengthening reading comprehension, fluency, stamina, synthesis, and vocabulary.
25 sessions per module
Focus on knowledge generation, central ideas, supporting ideas with text evidence, synthesizing across texts, and reading critically.
15 sessions per module
Formative assessments identify gaps in phonemic awareness, phonics, and comprehension, and placement guides ensure that students receive instruction on the right skills in the right sequence.
The reading material includes a combination of decodable texts matched to phonics lessons and engaging authentic texts to help students build comprehension.
In many schools, intervention specialists, paraprofessionals, and teachers provide individualized intervention with this curriculum.
The lessons are highly scaffolded so that even those with limited instructional experience can be trained to successfully tutor.
Littera Virtual Tutors are available to support you! Each receives extensive training before they are eligible to deliver any curriculum.
Each lesson is 30-45 minutes and is designed to be delivered three to five times per week.
Research shows it's best to schedule during the school day (e.g., during an intervention block) or right before or after school.
For some school and family communities, it makes sense for students to meet tutors virtually outside of school hours.
All of the program materials are integrated into the Littera Tutoring Management System, simplifying scheduling, tutor delivery, and tutor training.
Since everything happens inside of the Littera TMS, you get the data and reporting to prove your program is achieving the desired results.
