Comprehensive Reading, ELA, Social Studies, and Science - all in one experiential instructional program, specially designed for students with complex learning needs.

For many, reading is not a natural act, but everyone naturally derives learning from first-hand experience.

Readtopia brings first-hand experiential learning into the classroom, so students can bridge the gap between learning through reading, and learning through experiencing.

This approach taps students’ natural learning capabilities, and channels them into reading capabilities so students can begin to more fully participate both in school and in life.

  • Readtopia takes students down 1,000 feet in a submarine as they learn about oceanography.
  • Readtopia brings students into a volcano in Iceland as a way to introduce them to the book Journey to the Center of the Earth.


All of this is supported by authentic literature, phonics/early reading instruction, and informational text that builds foundational reading skills. Readtopia delivers the curriculum through thematic units that will help you transform classrooms into laboratories of experiential learning.

Readtopia materials include: 

  • Original video
  • Graphic novels (at six levels)
  • Authentic text (chapter book)
  • Leveled Informational Text
  • Phonic/Word Study
  • Assessment
  • Teacher guide that pulls everything together into incredible instruction

The Readtopia curriculum covers a full-range of Reading and ELA skills

All this, and they’re engaging!
