Students who come from urban settings face many challenges, including reading and comprehending texts. This paper focuses on the question “What specific literacy strategies can help low achieving fourth grade students who come from an urban setting increase their reading comprehension?” Using data collected from staff and student questionnaires, student work, and audio recordings, the conclusion is that there are multiple strategies that lead to the increase of reading comprehension. The successful strategies that increase a child’s reading comprehension that were found during this research can be used to educate teachers about which strategies support reading comprehension for students who come from an urban setting.
