Are you a middle school resource or remedial reading teacher? Would you like to help us study an innovative tool to boost student engagement and reading comprehension?

CAST seeks school districts to participate in an efficacy research study during the 2015-16 academic year. Middle school remedial reading and resource room teachers in participating districts will use one of two versions of Udio, a new Universally Designed for Learning online reading program.

Participating teachers and students will help us evaluate the program’s effects on students’ motivation and reading comprehension. Udio is aligned with college and career-ready standards, including the Common Core State Standards, and provides hundreds of stories for students to read. Participation in the research study involves using Udio as a supplemental reading tool in classrooms. Teachers and districts will receive stipends.
