These groups include students of color, English learners, and students from rural regions of Ohio. The project will focus on improving literacy instruction by drawing on structured literacy approaches along with strategies to improve instruction for the groups listed above.
Strategies will include understanding language and dialect in the classroom, family and community engagement, and drawing on and building students' background knowledge and vocabulary to improve reading outcomes.
