The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact that the TWA strategy had on the reading comprehension level of ninth- and tenth-grade students. The measurement tool used was the Degrees of Reading Power (DRP). This study used a pretest/posttest design over a five-week period. The null hypothesis was rejected because the reading comprehension level of students significantly increased as a result of the TWA strategy. Continued research regarding increasing reading comprehension levels of students would be beneficial so that students can be college and career ready.
