Delaware Education Research & Development Center
The centerpiece of education policy in America today, No Child Left Behind, has the federal Reading First program as its model for early literacy instruction. Within this context, the Delaware Department of Education faces the challenge of advising and guiding those districts struggling to make reading progress. Delaware’s Reading First (DE RF) proposes to effect widespread change through teacher training in Scientifically Based Reading Research (SBRR) practices. As part of the DE RF program evaluation, this Delaware Educator Poll examines the practices and beliefs of Delaware’s kindergarten to third grade teachers regarding SBRR and the literacy component of their teacher education and training.
