Organizing and Managing a Reading Program. A Position Paper.
New England Consortium for the Right to Read, Kingston, RI.
The New England Consortium criteria of excellence are 26 statements of conditions which describe a quality reading program and which must exist if all children are to learn to read. These statements are grouped under five goal areas, the second of which, organizing and managing a reading program, is treated in this position paper. The paper supports attainment of the following criteria for this goal area: there is articulation and coordination of the reading program throughout school system administrative units; a continuous progress organization of the reading program is in operation; classroom and school organizational patterns meet all needs of the school population; components of the language arts program support other program components; the reading program recognizes and accommodates the needs of subpopulations; all content area teachers teach the skills necessary for the effective reading of their instructional materials; program evaluation provides data necessary for describing achievement and measuring progress; the reporting system interprets a child's reading progress for parents; and the school system provides an education program for parents and reading instruction for adults.
