The Comprehension SEEDING system will have multiple components that we will develop and evaluate: self-explanation, enhanced discussion, and inquiry generation. The project will follow a User-Centered, Participatory, and Iterative Design process in its development. The project team will meet regularly with teachers during the design and development to ensure the system’s usability, the feasibility of implementing the intervention, and ultimately the promise of effect. In its summative evaluation, we will use a counterbalanced experimental design to assign teachers’ classes to treatment conditions.
