The intervention will be designed to supplement classroom lessons and will emphasize skills including vocabulary, communication, grammar, critical thinking, and writing. The app will provide students’ access to a wide range of genres, including fiction and non-fiction.. Pilot research in Phase I will seek to demonstrate that the software prototype functions as planned and that students are engaged with the prototype.
