ABSTRACT This applied research study seeks to increase reading achievement and improve organizational learning. The need to increase reading achievement among the lowest performing students became apparent after reviewing the data and discovering the high number of students scoring minimal and basic in reading achievement. Also, the need to improve organizational learning became evident with the school being given a “failing” accountability rating. Using professional learning communities, professional development training, and teacher observations, the program sought to improve teacher’s organizational learning and strategies in the classroom. Surveys, student interviews, student’s reading data, observations, and discipline data were used in the program evaluation for this research study. Findings support the READ 180 program when implemented according to its established guidelines and training, students can increase their reading achievement and teachers can improve their organizational learning.
