Reading Interventions


Leveled Literacy Intervention

Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) is a supplemental reading intervention program. It is a research-based reading intervention curriculum taught for students in grades K through 5.  The intervention was designed for students that need extra support to become proficient, grade-level readers. LLI provides 30 minutes of instruction in a small group setting. This reading instruction is in addition to the core reading/language arts program. The lessons provide explicit, direct instructions and are designed to support fluency, reading instructional level books, working with words, and writing.

Lesson Components

  • Re-reading/Running Record
