The Results Are In: Junior Great Books® Positively Impacts Students

The Great Books Foundation was happy to post,
"During the 2013–2014 school year, 44 District of Columbia Schools participated in a study to determine the impact of Junior Great Books on both Text Reading/Comprehension and Book Level over the course of the school year. Of the 44 schools in the study, 27 used Junior Great Books materials and our Shared Inquiry™ method of learning, and 17 did not. At the end of the year, proficient, below-proficient, and far-below-proficient students at the 27 Junior Great Books schools showed significantly higher increases in both Text Reading/Comprehension and Book Level than students at the same levels in the 17 schools that did not implement Junior Great Books."
