The goal of Project 3 is to improve scientific knowledge and clinical practice regarding effective reading comprehension instruction for English learners (ELs) with reading difficulties in the middle grades. The project also focuses on improving attention and self-regulation by integrating practices developed during previous funding cycles into our reading intervention. Extensive and intensive treatment for ELs with reading comprehension difficulties includes 2 academic years plus a summer book reading supplement. Participants include sixth- and seventh-grade students who are currently classified as having limited English proficiency or were reclassified in the last 2 years and show significant reading difficulties.
