Abstract

When working with an at-risk population of students, most of whom have experienced multiple academic interventions over the years, a prescribed program such as READ 180 often leads to lack of engagement and frustration. This study examines the potential for increasing reading engagement for at-risk students in a high school setting. It addresses best practices for quality literacy instruction by transforming the useful components of an existing program, to further engage and encourage students, while increasing the ability for students to connect to reading by increasing comprehension, vocabulary and fluency skills.
