Abstract: The Department of Education's Institute for Education Sciences has commissioned this evaluation as a response to the current need for experimental research about the impacts of adolescent literacy programs on reading and academic outcomes of struggling readers. This study focuses on literacy across the curriculum intervention that emphasizes literacy instruction throughout a high school student's day. High school students from diverse types of school districts across at least two of the states in the Midwest region will be tested in literacy and other student achievement data will be collected from school records. Classroom instruction will be observed throughout the course of the intervention. District and building administrators will be interviewed about the intervention and the need for large scale district and school reform in literacy instruction.
