How can teachers revolutionise literacy interventions?

With so many tools, curricula and techniques for literacy, it’s not always easy to know what will work well in our contexts. At Teacher Toolkit, we’re all about following the evidence…

3 interventions that add value!

We believe Lexonik’s programmes could be the resource you are looking for!

1. Lexonik Advance and Leap are research-backed literacy interventions that foster reading, spelling, vocabulary, and comprehension skills in students.

2. Lexonik Leap is one of their programmes for learners with phonics gaps, like those with EAL (English as an additional language) and/ or with a standardised reading score of less than 85. It builds individual pathways based on diagnostic assessments, so every learner is going to get something specific to their needs. 

3. Advance is aimed at learners with standardised reading scores of 85-115. The programme utilises some of our favourite pedagogical techniques, metacognition and phased repetition, to improve fluency! 

Why choose Lexonik programmes?

These programmes offer a strategic teaching approach, and their reports really make for impressive reading!

Lexonik is research-validated by Northumbria University and The National Literacy Trust

Learners on the Advance programme were found to make an average of 27 months progress during the training.

It’s even possible to dig into the variations in progress at different ages and starting points and choose a cohort you think would benefit the most! 

If that’s not enough, many teaching and learning superstars are backing the use of Lexonik in schools! 

How are the programmes implemented?

Both programmes offer staff training, teaching materials, student assessments, access to online support and ongoing connections with their regional trainers. Leap is recommended for small group intervention with students but can be used 1:1. Advance uses a 1:4 teacher-to-student ratio. 

If your school is interested in implementing evidence-based strategies to propel students’ progress, the Lexonik programmes are worth exploring.
