Abstract

Readorium will develop a desktop software to support students struggling with reading comprehension in middle school science. The software teaches readers the special features of nonfiction text and strategies for reading comprehension. The games will include an avatar to guide the student, multi-media articles of differing levels of difficulty that are aligned to standards, and embedded assessments to provide feedback. Phase I work will develop a prototype of the intervention.
