Reading to Achieve: A Governor's Guide to Adolescent Literacy (2005)

This report highlights successful state efforts that are already tackling the literacy crisis in middle and high schools and urges states to reconsider the role that literacy instruction can play in improving secondary schools. It culls five recommendations from existing state best practices to help governors in their attempts to improve adolescent literacy achievement in their states: 1) build support for a state focus on adolescent literacy; 2) raise literacy expectations across grades and curricula; 3) support school and district literacy plans; 4) build educators' capacity to provide adolescent literacy instruction; and 5) measure progress in adolescent literacy at school, district, and state levels.
