Abstract

This case study explores the value of including a reading engagement focus in a skills-based pull-out intervention. It follows a second-grade student from a traditional pull-out curriculum, using publisher-developed materials, to a model using teacher-selected materials. The instructional plan for the intervention included self-selection of reading materials, word study games, and picture book read-alouds. The plan was developed with the belief that reading engagement has a place in a skills-based intervention. Data showed improved reading scores on norm-referenced assessments, and an increased interest in reading in the case study student.
