State of Minnesota Criteria of Excellence in Reading Programing.
Minnesota State Dept. of Education, St. Paul.
This paper provides a definition of the characteristics necessary for a quality reading program in a Right to Read local education agency. Against these criteria the Right to Read Advisory Council of the local education agency may evaluate its current program. Through a comparison of current practices with what should be, existing strengths may be identified, weaknesses noted, and voids detected. The statements indicative of an excellent reading program include: coordination of all of the administrative facets of the reading program; continuous progress organization of the reading curriculum to preclude gaps and omissions; systematic record keeping for all pupils; complete testing; commitment by staff to pupil learning; accommodation of the varying moments of readiness, the varying rates of learning, and the special needs and problems of all children; accommodation of the instructional reading level of all children; accommodation of racial, cultural, and sexual differences; adjustment of curriculum in other subject areas; ongoing in-service education; preparation in reading for all personnel involved with students; inclusion of trained volunteer reading aides; provision for an adult basic education component; defined curricular provision for the gifted; and incorporation of a quality preschool component.
