Key to literacy is effective teaching

  • To support teacher effectiveness, FLDOE:

    • Provides leadership structure and resources to all districts

    • Supplies infrastructure for data collection, assessment, and dissemination of information

    • Offers systemic professional development

    • Provides easy access to reading research

    • Establishes clear student achievement goals

    • Uses data analysis to drive decision-making


Current state support structures l.jpg
Current State Support Structures

  • Robust state data infrastructure (further enhancement under Race to the Top)

  • Florida Center for Reading Research (FCRR)

  • Florida Assessments for Instruction in Reading (FAIR)

  • Progress Monitoring and Reporting Network (PMRN)

  • Response to Intervention (RtI)

Current State Support Structures (continued)

  • Leverage the use of other funds including ESEA, IDEA, and Perkins CTE Act

    • Combine program funds with the Perkins Career and Technical Education Act funds to provide support for literacy integration into career and technical education classes

    • Join program funds with other funding sources to provide additional reading teachers, district and school based literacy support staff, and/or professional development

District Structures

  • K-12 Comprehensive Reading Plan (K-12 CRP) approved by SEA

    • District leadership

State transition to internationally benchmarked college and career ready standards l.jpg
State Transition to Internationally-benchmarked College- and Career-ready Standards

  • Align professional development with Common Core State Standards implementation

  • Provide direction toward common items developed to assess Common Core State Standards


District literacy design collaborative making the connection l.jpg
District Literacy Design Collaborative: Career-ready Standards Making the Connection

  • Framework that establishes a connection between the common core standards, with the purpose of preparing students to be college/career ready

  • Grounded in :

    • critical reading

    • analytical thinking

    • implementation of civil discourse

    • creation of writing products as specified by the common core standards

  • Components include:

    • a prompt (template task) that allows teachers to “plug in” the content and the type of product that focuses students on what they should do and what product they should produce.

    • a scoring rubric for the template task that describes and connects demands and qualities established by the common core standards.

    • a template module that provides an “instructional ladder” to organize instruction based on the instructional demands of the template task.


Striving readers grant support effective teaching l.jpg
Striving Readers Grant: Career-ready Standards Support Effective Teaching

  • Eliminate strict research design

  • Focus on effective teaching rather than purchase and analysis of specific reading program

  • Focus on job-embedded professional development, follow-up support, and instructional delivery

  • Support technology and materials conforming to universal design for learning principles

  • Include integrated assessment system

  • Include rigorous accountability measures and fidelity checks

Addressing the Needs of Diverse Learners Across the Age Spans

  • Ensure vertical articulation between feeder pattern schools so that diverse student needs across age spans are considered and addressed

  • Provide mentoring and transition programs for diverse learners between preschool and kindergarten, elementary and middle school, and middle to high school

  • K-12 CRP addresses the needs of students across age spans
