No More Revolving Door: A Schoolwide Literacy Block Ends Disruptive Pullouts.
Northwest Education, v5 n1 p18-21 Fall 1999
Daniel A. Grout School in southeast Portland, Oregon, built a unified literacy program that sparked change across the school. The "literacy block" program, which focuses on teacher collaboration, early intervention, and higher-order thinking skills, began in 1996 as a Title I Schoolwide program. In 1998, Grout staff received "early bird" funding for a Comprehensive School Reform Demonstration proposal. (CDS)
