Reading on the Go! is a two-volume project that explores reading instruction for students experiencing high mobility as a result of high poverty.
Volume 1 reviews the characteristics of highly mobile students and provides a literature review of reading instruction, with a focus on the research on reading and high poverty in an effort to help practitioners better understand the needs of highly mobile students and inform their selection and structure of programs by making research-based decisions.
