The Essential Instructional Practices in Early Literacy
#MichiganLiteracy - Every Child, Every Classroom, Every Day!
The purpose of the Essential Instructional Practices in Early Literacy documents is to increase Michigan’s capacity to improve children’s literacy by identifying a small set of research supported literacy instructional practices that could be a focus of professional development throughout the state. The focus of the document is on classroom practices, rather than on school- or systems-level practices (which will be addressed in a future document).
