What does education research tell us about implementing successful, lasting initiatives for literacy improvement? How does the research apply to real-world practice? We will examine a case study from an Illinois district where there has been an increase of 14.6% of students meeting reading growth targets on MAP during the first two years of a strategic literacy implementation. We will discuss implementation from planning stages through training, coaching, and systemic capacity building, looking at the application of research-based practices. This presentation is for K-12 curriculum directors and district administrators interested in creating systemic change to improve reading performance district-wide.
