PI Donna Caccamise, co-PI Peter Foltz, and research staff John Weatherley, David Quigley, Rachel Lieber, Eileen Kintsch's Boulder Reading Intervention (eBRAVO) is a web-based, self-paced, personalized reading comprehension curriculum that teaches secondary students the problem-solving skills good readers use to learn from challenging texts, in this case in the Science discipline of Ecology. Reading strategies and exercises are guided by well-researched models of reading comprehension, helping students build deep, durable and reusable knowledge from text. Supported by a Cognition and Student Learning grant from IES.
