The MORE Study
The MORE Study is the result of a long-standing relationship between a large Southeastern school district and the READS Lab. We are conducting a randomized control trial (RCT) to determine the efficacy of the MORE curriculum in grades 1-3 classrooms. Currently, we are in year fiveof the study. Data collection will wrap up in the spring of 2022 and we anticipate early results in the winter of 2022.
The primary goal of the MORE study is to support educators and families in applying diagnoses and interventions that ensure every child, especially struggling learners, can read and comprehend content-rich text.
To meet this goal, we have developed a rich, rigorous curriculum we call MORE (Model of Reading Engagement). The MORE curriculum includes a set of 20 MORE grade-level lessons (90 activities)-- for teachers to implement in grades 1-2 (Year 1), grades 2-3 (Year 2), and grade 3 (Year 3).
We also have developed a mobile MORE app that is personalized to individual students' reading levels to encourage reading and support students' developing literacy skills. The app includes over 1700 activities directly related to the books MORE students read in school and and home.
