Rationale Behind the Study
I try to get to them at least once a week, but I am not always able to do that. You see, so many of my other students read below grade level that it is hard to justify not working with them. Many of these lower readers will be retained in this grade if they do not improve.
The top group already reads at grade level, so I rarely have any instructional time to give to them.

(Dr. Reis's 2008 Confratute SEM-R Keynote)
after implementing SEM-R...
In the beginning, I did not realize how much middle of the road reading instruction I did and how few of my kids I really challenged.

-4th Grade Treatment Teacher
The individualized reading was so enjoyable. I found the basal program brutally boring! The same activities each day followed by the same kinds of questions. The same worksheets each day were mind-numbing. I hated it! I loved doing the individualized stuff.

- 3rd Grade Treatment Teacher
Students in the treatment groups
saw gains in:

- attitudes about reading
- oral fluency
- reading comprehension
