The Current State of Literacy
With over half of 4th graders in the United States failing to read proficiently, something needs to change. The National Reading Panel synthesized the reading research almost two decades ago. Their findings revealed that the most effective reading instruction includes:
* Phonemic awareness
* Comprehension Strategies
In light of this, many schools have provided professional development focusing on fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary. However, phonemic awareness and systematic phonics have been largely ignored by many universities and school districts. That's why despite the millions of dollars spent on literacy, many kids are still failing to meet grade level expectations.
Some states have finally done something about this crisis. Several states are now requiring that teachers receive training in the science of reading (otherwise known as Structured Literacy™), an instructional approach supported by research. Considering the current challenges facing us, how will schools meet the demand for teacher training with limited budgets and time constraints?
