PreK-16 Literacy Action Plan for the 21st Century

NH DOE and the NH Literacy Task Force have produced a PreK-16 Literacy Action Plan for the 21st Century. The entire document with appendices can be found at the link below along with a PowerPoint Presentation that explains the development process and a summary of what is included in the document. This version includes active links to other resources and documents.

Every school in New Hampshire received at least one bound version of the Literacy Plan, CD-rom versions of the plan, and professional resources selected especially to assist in the implementation of a comprehensive literacy program. The texts are: The Literacy Principal, by Booth and Rowsell; Subjects Matter, by Daniels and Zemelman; Best Practice Third Edition, by Zemelman, Daniels, & Hyde; Learning by Doing, by Dufour, Dufour, Eaker, & Many; Creating a Culture of Literacy: A Guide for Middle and High School Principals, NASSP; and Teaching Reading in the Content Areas, by Billmeyer & Barton. In addition to above texts, each school is received a DVD prepared by the NH Parent Information Center that includes ideas for working with parents.
