Center on Instruction
This "Facilitator's Guide" has been prepared for presenters of the Reviewing a Reading Program professional development training. It is one of three pieces comprising a suite of materials on reviewing reading programs: this "Guide", the "Reviewing a Reading Program Participant's Guide" and the "Reviewing a Reading Program" Professional Development PowerPoint with embedded speaker's notes. This "Facilitator's Guide" contains materials and lists to help prepare for presenting this professional development and a set of templates for generating correspondence, attendance lists, and so forth. A general introduction to the point and purpose of reviewing reading programs appears in the "Participant's Guide", which users should point out to participants and also read carefully before delivering this professional development. The "Reviewing a Reading Program" professional development is intended to give participants an understanding of how to use the "Guidelines" (contained in the "Participant's Guide") in order to make informed decisions about choosing core reading programs for students in grades K through 6 and supplemental/intervention reading programs for students in grades K through 12. It is expected that Regional Comprehensive Centers or states will use this professional development to train department of education and school district personnel involved in curriculum decision-making in the complex work of selecting high quality reading programs.
