Intensive Reading Instruction in Juvenile Correctional Settings
Williams, Jacob L.; Wexler, Jade; Roberts, Greg; Carpenter, Clint
Exceptionality, v19 n4 p238-251 2011
Despite 60 years of evidence linking juvenile illiteracy and delinquency, practitioners and policymakers have been painfully slow in the implementation of evidence-based reading interventions for incarcerated juveniles. We will present the Texas Juvenile Justice Tiered Instructional Model, an evidence-based reading program model created specifically for juvenile correction institutions. The Texas Juvenile Justice Tiered Instructional Model is based on the increasingly prominent tiered approach to allocating educational resources and includes four main components: (a) universal screening, (b) evidence-based instruction, (c) regular monitoring of student progress, and (d) increasingly intense instruction. We discuss adaptations made to each component to meet the unique needs of juvenile correction settings. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)
