Guiding Principles of Literacy Instruction:

  • Literacy propels independent thinking, reading, writing, speaking, listening, and new literacies.
  • Standards-based and disciplinary literacy instruction accelerate student gains. 
  • Literacy is a fundamental part of instruction in all disciplines.
  • Teachers as adaptive experts have the most impact on student learning.
  • Evidence-based instructional approaches transform an emergent reader into a skilled reader and a lifelong learner.
  • Administrators are change agents and have the power to create and to support a culture of literacy.
