Creating a Culture of Literacy: A Guide for Middle and High School Principals (2005)

The NASSP report approaches the problem of adolescent literacy at the school level. It calls for a greater focus on reading skills at the middle and high school levels, but acknowledges that many schools do not have the "trained staff, resources, and fiscal support to ensure supplemental and supportive literacy programs." In order to fully implement a successful adolescent literacy program at the secondary school level, the report identifies several key elements that must be in place, including committed and supportive school leaders, ongoing research-based professional development, and highly effective teachers in every content area who can provide explicit instruction to improve comprehension.
