Challenge your Elementary principals to adopt the goal: Every teacher will be a master teacher of reading. Conduct a literacy audit, get buy in, build your assessment strategy, conduct data meetings, build core curriculum and differentiated instruction (RTI) - data based decision making, train coaches to train the teachers so its sustainable. Leadership is key. Training and modeling for teacher to deliver informed data driven intervention is key. Do this, and your special ed roles will shrink as your literacy scores rise. Read the book, or call to discuss. www.hillforliteracy.org

Choose developmentally appropriate programs for primary children. If young children are taught appropriately with engaging texts and supportive skills they will be come successful readers and most importantly love to read. It defeats the purpose to teach children to read if they do not enjoy it.
