Reading K-10 Grade Level Expectations: A New Level of Specificity.
Washington State Department of Education
This publication is designed to help accomplish one of our most pressing challenges--teaching children how to read and how to learn by reading. Washington's school reform efforts focus on setting clear, high expectations for what students should know and be able to do. The Essential Academic Learning Requirements (EALRs) articulate the state's expectations and learning standards. The Washington Assessment of Student Learning (WASL) measures whether students have met these standards. A glossary is also included.
Descriptors: State Standards, Academic Standards, Reading Achievement, Reading Instruction, Reading Skills, Educational Change, Instructional Program Divisions, Vocabulary Development, Reading Comprehension
