Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI), designed by Irene Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell, is a small-group, supplementary literacy intervention for the lowest-achieving students in grades K–5.
Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) is designed to close the achievement gap and bring every student to grade level performance. Leveled Literacy Intervention can be paired with Reading Recovery, a one-to-one literacy intervention for the lowest-achieving first-graders, to provide an enhanced system to ensure literacy success in the early years of schooling and an additional safety net for struggling readers and writers.
