Story Champs is a multi-tiered academic language curriculum that facilitates oral language, vocabulary and comprehension skills for all students, including English Learners and students with IEPs. Story Champs is a semi-manualized program that can be used to supplement a core literacy program with explicit teaching procedures as well as differentiation strategies. While the primary focus of Story Champs is on the development of a strong oral language foundation through storytelling, it also promotes other aspects of academic language that are essential for school success through information retelling, vocabulary learning and writing.
