Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v47 n1 p14-23 Sep 2003

Details how reading achievement testing was conducted and the results were translated into effective literacy reforms designed to go beyond "teaching to the middle." Tracks the experiences of two students at either end of the reading ability continuum and the effects the initiatives had on them. (SG)
