Engage Literacy is a comprehensive literacy program (K-3) that can be used with an individual, small-group and/or whole class focus. The core elements of a balanced literacy program have been covered, i.e. written language (reading and writing) and oral language (speaking and listening.) The program covers reading levels 1 to 30 (GRL A-P), and includes both fiction and non-fiction texts. All texts are curriculum linked, and Levels 2 to 30 fiction texts link thematically to corresponding nonfiction titles.
