I also suggest you look at Reading Skill Builder. It has a variety of reading activities (vocabulary-in-context, main idea, author’s purpose, etc.) that help students transition to read at higher levels. The program has explanations for each answer and provides a lot of support for struggling readers.
Students see their scores and progress while using both programs. Boys (and girls) are motivated to achieve higher levels while using the software.
