Washington State K-12 Reading Model Implementation Guide.
Geiger, Sue; Banks, Anne; Hasbrouck, Jan; Ebbers, Susan
Washington State Department of Education
This document is for all K-12 teachers and others interested in making OSPI's goal of 100% literacy a possibility for their state's citizens. This document will assist teachers who face challenges at all grade levels and aid in celebrating the diversity in every classroom, while also supporting schools as they seek to close the achievement gap with all students in the area of reading. The goal of the K-12 Reading Model is to provide a framework from which to work on systemic reform in reading instruction. It is simply a guide; this is one model. There are other models that work, and schools are encouraged to seek answers to their unique situations and find what works best for them. The goal is to increase student achievement; however, the ways in which schools reach their goals will be as exceptional as are the teachers, students, and communities across Washington.
