The overall goal is to significantly raise the level of literacy achievement for children across the elementary years.

The third section presents results of data collected for 38 schools involved in the project for at least four years. The fourth section describes the effects of implementation on specific schools through individual educators' reflections. The final section offers implications and suggestions for further research.
