First of all, I’d like to say that all of our reading programs can help these students. The foundation of all Merit Software programs is a step-by-step approach to understanding specific concepts, the encouragement of critical thinking, and interactive student lessons. Research shows that these techniques are effective in improving students’ academic performance.
Merit Software gives also provides students a hands-on learning experience. Students see the immediate impact of their replies to questions. Often, they are given explanations for their responses, whether the answer is right or wrong, which increases their motivation and encourages them to go on.
For the students you mentioned I recommend Reading Shape-Up Set 2 and Developing Critical Thinking Skills for Upper Grades.
