This package uses a visual representation of the concept event and story to bring all students to the starting gate of comprehension. The visual offsets the lack of prior knowledge. The story frame is the tool used to increase the level of reading comprehension. For the low achiever it begins with the event, which lays the foundation for the parts of a story. After students learn event, they then learn how to use the story frame to comprehend a story. As this frame is used repeatedly with each new story, knowledge increases and the category network grows. Reading skills can now be added to the frame because a pattern has been formed in the mind and the achievement gap begins to close.
