The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of pull out intervention programs have on reading achievement in elementary male students. The measurement tool was the Fountas and Pinnell Literacy Assessment as well as a Beginning/Advanced Decoding Survey. The study involved the use of a pretest/post-test design to compare data from prior to the intervention (November 2018) to immediately following four months of intervention (March 2019). The participants included a targeted group of “at-risk” elementary-aged students,grades third through fifth. Research showed that participants demonstrated a significant increase in both reading comprehension and decoding. However, when further data analysis was completed on specific grades, only fifth grade participants showed an increase in both areas while third and fourth grade participants increased in comprehension only.
