The rationale behind this project was to train K-2 teachers in effective methods for addressing early literacy development using innovative methods that equip students with the depth of knowledge Common Core State Standards ([CCSS] National Governors Association Center for Best Practices & Council of Chief State School Officers, 2010) require. The implementation of the Reader's Workshop (Calkins, 2010) model of instruction and Scholastic's foundational digital reading program iRead (Scholastic Inc., 2014) were selected as alternative, more re levant curricula to monitor and increase student reading proficiency.
