Sussex Central Middle School implemented a program to improve the reading achievement of its special education students. In 2004, the school received the state rating qSchool Under Improvementq according to No Child Left Behind guidelines. This rating was a direct result of not meeting the set state targets in special education for English language arts and mathematics. In response to the English language arts weakness, the middle school implemented the READ 180 program for the 2004-2005 school year. Due to scheduling constraints, the program had to be adapted for a number of the special education students. Therefore, students were scheduled within two implementation models referred to in this paper as Implementation Model I and Implementation Model II. The purpose of this study was to explore and compare the impact of these two READ 180 models on the reading achievement of special education students. In addition, it offers recommendations based on data analysis of three measures, the Student Testing and Reporting (STAR), the Scholastic Reading Inventory, and the Delaware Student Testing Program's Reading assessment. It is recommended that the READ 180 program should continue at Sussex Central Middle. Because there was no significant difference between the two models, and Implementation Model II is more closely aligned with the middle school philosophy, the adapted program of Implementation Model II is worthy of a second look and is the recommended course of action. Special education students made gains in reading while they were afforded the same educational offerings of their peers in the regular education population.... from daily routine.a€ Additional topics of study recorded in Teacher Ba#39;s daily activity log were compare and contrast; phonics/blends; making words vocabulary building; the writing process for narrative and descriptive writing and graphic organizers; grammar ... 6-10 years. Since Teacher C taught 6th grade only, I did not focus on her program because the school needed to first and foremost determine 62.
