LANGUAGE!Ⓡ Fourth Edition is an intensive, comprehensive literacy curriculum for students in grades 4-12 who are substantially below grade level expectations. With an explicit, systematic approach that is proven to accelerate the growth of struggling readers and nonreaders, LANGUAGE! integrates instruction in foundational skills, writing, vocabulary, fluency, grammar, comprehension, and spoken English.
LANGUAGE! Fourth Edition meets the needs of any student in grades 4-12 struggling with reading, including special education students and nonreaders. The Focus on English Learning version of the program incorporates strategies and Everyday English Plus materials to support English language learners.
With LANGUAGE! Fourth Edition students have consistently exceeded typical LexileⓇ growth. These results were demonstrated in a study conducted with a Three-Year Cohort (2011-2014) that included students in grades 4-11 in 163 districts, in 42 states.
