A New Powerful & Comprehensive
Reading Intervention for Struggling Adolescent Readers

Wow!!! Impressive results . . . a win for our kids!! —Carol Sanders, Director of Teaching and Learning K-12 (now retired)
Results from two field-test intervention groups: average gain of 35 wcpm and 26 wcpm in 75 lessons

My students now LOVE to read out loud, have gained confidence in reading and are proud to let others know . . . Their comprehension and writing summaries have greatly improved . . . and they love using the new vocabulary words they have learned. I can't say enough good things about this program.
Comments from a field-test teacher (in her second year of teaching The Third Quest)
