This “quick start” guide for elementary school-level instructional leaders is based on scientific research on reading and reading instruction as well as on studies of successful schools and interviews with successful principals. It includes critical elements of an effective reading program in elementary school, critical tasks for principals as literacy leaders, and special considerations for reading instruction after third grade.
This guide may assist instructional leaders in schools that are implementing School Improvement Grants (SIG) and/or the College and Career Ready Standards (including the Common Core State Standards) as they plan effective reading programs.
