Description:
In this article, Dole briefly outlines the federal initiative Title I and its role in education. She says that it has not delivered the kind of improvements expected, so now, under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, teachers need to be highly qualified to teach reading, and that instruction should be based on methods and strategies that have been empirically tested and proven to be effective. Additionally, effective reading coaches need to be more skilled at teaching reading than the teachers they are coaching. Effective coaches provide feedback to teachers and are able to reflect on their own coaching practices.
