Center on Instruction
The Curriculum and Instructional Projects Team at the Florida Center for Reading Research (FCRR) developed "Guidelines for Reviewing a Reading Program" ("Guidelines") to assist reviewers in determining if a program is consistent with the scientific research on reading. Based on that work, the Center on Instruction Reading Strand developed this professional development for "Reviewing a Reading Program". The Center on Instruction has created a two-day professional development training, based on the FCRR "Guidelines", to guide reviewers of reading programs through the review process. This Participant's Guide contains resources (charts, summaries, and the "Guidelines" themselves) to help reviewers review a reading program. It can be used in two ways. Reviewers may refer to it during the two-day professional development for "Reviewing a Reading Program" as the facilitator presents information and while completing the activities. After the training, the "Participant's Guide" can serve as a tool for reviewing any reading program. A glossary of reading terms is included.
