By the middle grades, students are expected to transition from "learning to read" to "reading to learn." For adolescent students who read significantly below grade level, this shift can life-changing.

Today we discuss an effective, research-based intervention being used to connect with older students and accelerate the development of skills like fluency, decoding, reading stamina, and comprehension in the middle grades.

Host Kori Hamilton Biagas sits down with Margaret Troyer and Kala Jones from the Strategic Education Research Partnership (SERP Institute) to discuss STARI, the Strategic Adolescent Reading Intervention.

Troyer and Jones share how STARI has been implemented into classrooms and how it is working to reduce gaps and improve outcomes for struggling students.
