A proven and powerful model for elementary school literacy!

Elementary schools are continuously challenged to ensure that all students become capable readers. Significantly updated with new research and further experience with multiple schools, this enlightening book shows how a school or district can build every child's literacy skills, based on the real-world strategies of an acclaimed school reform program that has benefited more than 2 million children.

Written by the program's founders and leaders, this resource shows how educators can use the Success for All program to reach at-risk students and promote schoolwide academic achievement. The authors describe how schools can effectively combine prevention, intensive early intervention, and ongoing assessment to promote strong reading skills. This new edition of One Million Children provides updates to all curriculum areas—including multimedia approaches—drawn from the program's nationwide research and recent advancements. Readers will find:

  • Guidance on developing students' readiness to learn through preschool and kindergarten programs that promote pre-literacy
  • Reading curricula for each age group, with supplemental information on writing and math
  • Recommendations on professional development that helps teachers and administrators support literacy
  • Advice on removing roadblocks to learning through multidisciplinary Solutions Teams and individualized tutoring programs
  • New adaptations for English language learners

These strategies and best practices, based on the experiences of thousands of schools, can help all children succeed in the elementary years.
