The resource is organised in nine sections: Summary, Target student group, Method, Results, Lessons learned, Next steps, Research base, Further reading and links, and Contacts. It describes how the program worked to improve students' information-retrieval times and their understanding of basic academic skills. It also describes the program's operation (withdrawal from class for 30 minutes three times a week for 30 weeks); its research and theoretical base; and the results it achieved.
