Our research team aims to develop and test the Self-Determined Learning Model of Instruction for Reading (SDLMI-Reading) for upper-elementary students with or at risk for reading disability. The purpose of this project is to develop and test SDLMI-Reading to increase self-determination and reading achievement among fourth- and fifth-graders with or at risk for reading disability.
This newly developed program will adapt the research-based SDLMI, originally designed to support secondary students in transition planning, addressing a critical need for self-determination interventions for upper-elementary students.
