A Framework Based on the Latest Research in Reading Comprehension and Literacy
Literacy First’s capacity-building professional development framework and teaching materials are based on rigorous research and an understanding of the role literacy plays in students’ academic performance. As a result, the Literacy First framework exceeds the criteria for professional development and implementation of reading programs established by the No Child Left Behind Reading First program.
Research shows that for students to perform at or above grade level in reading assessments, they must have systematic and explicit instruction in all components of the reading process.
With the research-based components, tools and processes of Literacy First, you as an instructional leader can best foster a district and building culture that supports excellence in content area reading achievement.
