Abstract

An explanation of the design, implementation and evaluation of a website supporting students who are fluent word callers but unable to comprehend content texts is provided. Repurposing the Web-based Interactive Reading Environment (WIRE) for training teachers to understand the component parts of creating instructional supports for inefficient learners is the secondary benefit and focus of this project. WIRE provides three levels of support to students who are word callers but poor at comprehending. Science content materials incorporating research-based interventions within a multi-media delivery system having gradual release to student independent use on any type of content material is the scope of the project. As teachers begin to use WIRE they need to have an understanding of the multiple theories embedded as well as the operation/navigation of the software. WIRE is repurposed to provide teachers a supplemental tool to use in their classrooms.
