REA 560 Literacy Intervention Program Review Discussion Paper

Literacy Intervention Program Review

Reading/Literacy specialists need to be familiar with the most current curricular programs used by schools and districts to teach literacy. Knowledge of these programs enables reading/literacy specialists to support evidence-based practices around data collection, instruction, and assessment, as well as related interventions.

Create a graphic organizer to outline three evidence-based literacy intervention programs designed to support struggling readers in a more intensive learning environment (e.g., Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) Fountas and Pinnell, Reading Recovery, Read 180, Accelerated Reader, Success for All, Wilson Fundations) for your school administration, including at least one that utilizes technology.

In 500-750 words, include the following in your graphic organizer for each program:

  • Name of program and appropriate grade levels.
  • What the program is intended to teach or remediate.
  • How the program is implemented.
  • Assessments that are part of the program or ways to measure student progress.
  • Current research supporting the effectiveness of the program.

You are encouraged to select literacy programs relevant to your field experience classroom or the school/district in which you are immersed.

Select one of the programs from the graphic organizer that you would recommend. Then, in 250-500 words, discuss how this program could be used by reading/literacy specialists and teachers to support literacy learning and meet the needs of all students. How will the chosen program be disseminated to staff, implemented, and continuously evaluated in a way that fosters a positive literacy environment?
