NetWords, n2 p1-4,6-7 Oct 1993
This document consists of an article and a two-page illustration "Putting Together the Pieces of the Puzzle." Noting that individual schools and communities throughout Indiana continue to struggle to meet the needs of young adolescents, the article discusses the work of the Stakeholder Steering Committee of the Middle Grades Reading Network. Noting that the goal of the Stakeholders is to tackle the logistical barriers that stand in the way of Indiana's becoming a community of readers for young people, the article lists members of the committee and 10 areas of common ground of the 8 Stakeholder groups as well as the individualized plans of the 8 groups involving: business/school collaboration, Indiana Reading Professors, Indiana State Reading Association, Nonformal Educators, parents, public librarians, schools, and school library media specialists. An illustration lists goals of public libraries, role models, reading environment, professional development, time, access to books, community, and parents. (RS)
