Abstract
The project team is developing a prototype of the Readorium Rising Reader, a web-based game for students in grades 3 to 5 intended to strengthen reading comprehension of non-fiction science text. The game will provide students with strategies to use as they construct meaning and decipher new content vocabulary. The game will supplement classroom lessons and will be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. Pilot research in Phase I will seek to demonstrate that the software prototype functions as planned and that students are engaged with the components of the prototype.
