Struggling middle school readers: Successful, accelerating intervention: Read 180 program

This study investigated the effectiveness of READ 180, a reading intervention program that uses a motivating video to anchor instruction in reading comprehension, decoding, word recognition, spelling and fluency. Low performing middle school students participating in READ 180 for one school year improved Reading and Language Arts Normal Curve Equivalent Scores, while nonparticipating peers declined in performance, scoring significantly lower than READ180 students.
