Looking for updated resources/research for the Purple and Teal kits; how-tos with middle school students. Planning and group ideas/suggestions that will bring achievement and growth. Seems like these higher levels haven't brought the gains or aren't truly the correct intervention for the students in grades 6-8. Please advise!

The longer students fall behind the longer it may take for them to catch up. How long it will take depends on several factors. Students who have practiced poor reading behaviors must unlearn those and replace them with good processing behaviors. It will not happen as quickly if students are older and have had difficulties for a longer period of time. This is why early intervention is more powerful. Just like in the medical field, prevention is better than treatment. LLI was designed for students who fall 6 months to a year below their peers. If your students are even farther behind it will take longer, sometimes longer than the results found in the research studies.

For older readers the key is to engage the students in independent reading via the guided reading using leveled texts in an LLI group. We all become better readers by reading. Usually these students tuned out when the materials they had became too hard or were not interesting enough to hold their attention. The LLI books are at the students' instructional and independent levels and are very interesting and engaging. These students need more reading than just the LLI books though.
