The Middle Grades Reading Network: Building a Community of Readers.
Middle Grades Reading Network, Evansville, IN.
Noting that Indiana is poised to take active steps toward becoming a community of readers for its young adolescent citizens, this pamphlet discusses the foundations laid by the Middle Grades Reading Improvement program and plans for the Middle Grade Reading Network. The pamphlet discusses: how Indiana's schools have "failed" young adolescents; an "ideal" vision of a school and community that supports all adolescents to develop their full potential as readers; the breadth of activities of the 10 projects that comprise the Middle Grades Reading Improvement program; the role of the Middle Grades Reading Network in realizing the vision of building a community of readers.
