PowerUp program strands

Word study

Activities in the word study strand target gaps in basic reading skills and develop academic vocabulary, providing students with the foundations they need for development of more complex reading skills.


Working through the grammar strand, students improve their written composition and reading comprehension skills and develop an understanding of parts of speech and sentences, correct use of capitalisation and punctuation, and overall text structure.


With the fundamental reading skills under their belt, students can begin to better understand what it is they are reading. In the comprehension strand, they learn and utilise the skills required for higher order text analysis across a variety of passages including academic texts.

Offline Learning

This is where part three of Lexia’s three-part learning model comes into play to support both students and educators.

PowerUp’s paper-based resources are automatically recommended by the program based on the pupil’s progress and requirements. There are over 1000+ resources available within the program in the form of Lexia Lessons® and Lexia Skill Builders®.

Lexia Lessons®

Where a pupil is struggling with a specific unit, myLexia flags this challenge with the educator and presents relevant downloadable and fully scripted lesson plans that can be easily delivered by a teacher or TA to a single pupil or small group of pupils. These are called Lexia Lessons®.

Lexia Skill Builders®

For pupils who demonstrate mastery and complete a unit, myLexia generates relevant Skill Builder® worksheets, which can be completed as part of a Lexia session, during extra time at the end of a class activity, or even as a homework task. These resources reinforce Lexia’s independent learning model.

Lexia’s Personalised Learning Model

Lexia’s personalised learning model is totally unique.

The three-stage model combines online learning, data, and offline teacher-led support for a systematic, structured approach to learning.

This model has been the subject of several research studies and isn’t just research-based, it’s research-proven.

Independent student-driven learning

Ongoing data to drive instructional priorities

Resource for face-to-face instruction

Independent student-driven learning

Students work independently to develop critical reading and language skills through individualised, motivating learning paths. All students, regardless of their skill level, can each work at their own pace and the teacher is notified (on web-based reports and via email) only when they require support.

Ongoing data to drive instructional priorities

As students work independently in the online activities of Lexia's instructional programs, real-time performance data is collected. Educators can access data reports online through their myLexia accounts.

Resource for face-to-face instruction

Teachers have the resources they need for face-to-face instruction and independent student practice. Based on student data, Lexia recommends specific resources for individual and group instruction that fit flexibly into existing classroom routines.
