Building capacity in low-performing readers: Results of two months of Reading Plus® practice

Abstract

In this report, we describe the progress of students with extreme reading deficits over the first two months of a webbased reading intervention, Reading Plus.

Reading Plus is typically utilized as an instructional solution for developing and challenged readers. In alignment with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), Reading Plus offers a wide range of carefully leveled narrative and informational texts that engage students, encourage students to read with purpose and understanding, and develop skills needed to achieve year-end expectations as outlined in the CCSS. Adaptive scaffolds carefully address individual student needs and facilitate each student’s development of comprehension-based silent reading efficiency and independent silent reading proficiency.
