Supporting Districts in Selecting Evidence-Based Literacy Interventions - Current

Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) is prioritizing improving practices in literacy instruction, targeting early literacy proficiency and the fundamental building blocks of later educational success.  This project is developing a Literacy Intervention Selection Tool that allows district leaders and instructional/ literacy specialists to identify evidence-based literacy interventions for students in 4th-12th grade. The tool draws on What Works Clearinghouse evidence reviews and the IES Practice Guide: Providing Reading Interventions for Students in Grades 4–9 to categorize literacy interventions currently used in schools in Massachusetts.
