Families and classrooms face the problem of students who
read below grade level. The developer of The Language Enrichment Program
faced and solved this pressing problem for students in his own classroom. Now
this self-contained, self-instructional reading program is offered on this website to a wider audience by the developer.
This program has been in continuous development, use, and
validation for a longer period than any other reading program available on the
market today. It has proven successful for students above age eight. The author
has used it with students in middle school, high school, college, and adults.
On an individual basis the program has been used to tutor students as young as
third grade. This program works well over a wide range of grade levels because
it is content centered, not grade level centered. The program teaches students
to understand the basic structure of English to enable them to comprehend
todayís more complexly written textbooks and other reading material.
Typical results documented by the author in his own classes
show that students on average gain two years in reading achievement in a single
semester. Those students range individually from one to five years reading
growth. A typical class shows 80% of the students show measurable improvement.
The top eight students (of nearly 40) in the authorís first classroom trial of
the program tested as many years above their grade level in reading as they had
The Language Enrichment Program is written to teach
its content step by step, using approximately 2165 individual steps in
seventy-nine exercises in twenty-five chapters. The program is
self-instructional and includes answer keys with notes and explanations. The
program is student-friendly, and can be used with little or no help from a
parent, tutor, or teacher. The program takes from twenty-four to seventy-five
hours to complete. The program is self-paced, permitting the learner to proceed
at his or her own speed. It can be successfully worked in short segments, yet
students who are so motivated may continue using it for as long as they wish at
a single sitting.
Imagine the benefit to you, your child, or your students
that two or more years gain in reading achievement provides. In the developerís
classroom experience, students read better, read more, do better in all their
classes, maintain the gains and benefits from the program permanently, and are
far more motivated to pursue academic work successfully. Students have had
their lives changed radically for the better. Instead of being probable or
certain dropouts, the developerís students went on to successful high school or
college experiences and careers. The developer tutored high school athletes who
then successfully improved their ACT or SAT scores to secure college athletic
scholarships using The Language Enrichment Program.
