Learning how to read can be an arduous task for some students. Some have difficulty sounding out words, while others can read well but do not understand what they have read. Students who struggle with reading need to be taught the basics (e.g., phonemic awareness) prior to moving on to reading words, reading fluently, and then comprehending what they have read. Obviously, if a middle or high school student lacks these skills, he/she needs to learn them first before moving forward. The use of research-based literacy interventions is essential for students to be successful in all tiers of the RTI model. Thus, this chapter focuses on presenting research-based interventions that may assist with this process. Current research on the success of these interventions is also presented.
