Striving Readers is a new grant program from the U.S. Department of Education that will support the implementation and evaluation of research-based reading interventions for struggling middle and high school readers in Title I eligible schools that have significant percentages or numbers of students reading below grade level. The Striving Readers Program aims to enhance the overall level of reading achievement in middle and high schools through improvements to the quality of literacy instruction across the curriculum; improve the literacy skills of struggling adolescent readers; and help build a strong, scientific research base around specific strategies that improve adolescent literacy skills.
