Summary This study is an examination of fourth grade struggling readers in the author's 2010-2011 class. Of the 28 students, eight of them were labeled as either low-performing readers or English Language Learners (ELL). The purpose for this study was to try and discover why the fourth grade students were struggling to read expository texts. The author also examined why these so-called "struggling readers" were entering the fourth grade already below grade-level in their reading skills. In this study, digital medias and literacies were introduced. The findings of this study suggest that students who struggle to read informational texts at the beginning of fourth grade can improve by the close of the school year when technology, digital literacies, and student interests are used to support learning.
