Capstone Project Title
The question that guided this project was: How can using an intervention based on a comprehension strategy increase student reading interest? This question guided research on digital and print texts, student reading interest, and a brief history of balanced literacy. Many schools use a mix of digital and print resources and students need to be prepared to understand each. Using independent reading time at school has shown to give students greater success in literacy and other areas of school. It has shown that dedicated independent reading time is important at school. The goal of this project was to make independent reading time at school more intentional for all students. The resources in this project are meant to be used by teachers to better utilize and support students during their independent reading time. By using this project, students will develop stronger comprehension skills and a better understanding of what types of books they like and dislike. It utilizes a classroom diagnostic to indicate which students need more support in comprehension skills. There are six weeks intervention lessons with assessments each day and progress monitoring each week.
