Authored by Drs. Isabel L. Beck and Margaret McKeown, Word Heroes is a supplemental literacy program that develops oral language, vocabulary, and comprehension.
Word Heroes is currently available in three levels: Recruit, Apprentice, and Specialist. While these levels align to Grade K-2 standards, the grade level is not noted on the materials. This fact coupled with the program's complex texts, sophisticated Tier 2 vocabulary words, and support for adapting the program for various student groups make it possible to use Word Heroes off-level to support students requiring intervention at higher grade levels.
