Thank you for your question. While Expert 21 is designed for students in grades 6-9, ultimately, it will be your students’ reading comprehension level that will determine the appropriateness of Expert 21. As you indicated, Expert 21 is a comprehensive language arts program that combines inquiry-based learning, explicit instruction and scaffolds for comprehension and literacy skills with the application of real world, 21st Century skills and strategies that all students will need for their future. The content is contemporary and relevant, and integrates English language arts and interdisciplinary content area literacy throughout the program.
Although the program does include a number of scaffolds to build students’ understanding, critical thinking, and independent inquiry, please keep in mind that Expert 21 is not an intervention program. If you are looking for an intervention program then READ 180 may be a more viable option, however if you are looking for a 21st century program that includes engaging, appropriate and applicable content then Expert 21 may be a great solution for you and your students.
