  • LLI Systems

    What is LLI?

    Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) is an intensive, daily, small-group, supplementary, short-term literacy intervention proven to improve literacy achievement of striving readers. LLI provides instruction in reading, writing, and phonics/word study with engaging fiction and nonfiction leveled books and fast-paced systematically designed lessons.

    What is the goal of LLI?

    The goal of LLI is to lift the literacy achievement of students who are not meeting grade-level expectations in reading.

    The LLI systems are designed to:

    • Advance the literacy learning of students not meeting grade-level expectations in reading.
    • Deepen and expand comprehension.
    • Increase reading volume by engaging students in large amounts of successful daily reading.
    • Increase student engagement with books that build knowledge.
    • Intervene with small groups of striving readers to maximize growth.
    • Meet the needs of striving readers.
    • Monitor student progress.

    Who is LLI for?

    The LLI systems are designed to be used with small groups of students who need intensive support to achieve grade-level competencies. LLI also provides strong support for students who are acquiring English as an additional language and are receiving classroom reading instruction in English.
