Improving Literacy Achievement: An Effective Approach to Continuous Progress
Haley, Carolyn E.
Rowman & Littlefield Education
Billions of dollars are spent searching for programs and strategic plans that will prove to be the panacea for improving literacy achievement. With all of the experimental and researched programs implemented in school districts, the overall results are still at a minimum and many improvement gains have been short term. This book focuses on literacy achievement through a Continuous Progress conceptual approach. This book features detailed steps for developing and implementing a literacy program for primary students in grades K-3 and includes chapters on looping, or continuous progress, at higher levels (grades 4-5). Carolyn E. Haley shows how looping at these levels proves to be an effective practice in increasing student achievement in all subject areas as evidenced in her research and extensive work. This book is divided into 4 sections: (1) What is the Continuous Progress Approach?; (2) How Does This Program Differ from the Traditional School Program?; (3) Reorganizing for Continuous Progress; and (4) Steps to a Successful School Reform.
