Reading Instruction

To be proficient in reading and writing, students need continuous literacy instruction throughout middle and high school, not just in the early grades, a report by the Washington-based Alliance for Excellent Education argues.

The federally funded Reading First program focuses on students in grades K-3, but more instruction is needed in grades 4-12 to keep students at grade-level expectations for reading, says the report. The authors recommend increasing funding for the federal Striving Readers program, which supports literacy instruction in the upper grades.
