27 p. 

This handbook lists the International Reading Association's 10 recommendations for improving the standards set by Congress' latest reauthorization of Title I, a program that uses federal funds at the local school district level to improve the performance of students in the early elementary grades who are at risk of school failure. Each recommendation is stated and briefly described; supporting evidence is outlined for the recommendation; and references and annotated suggested readings are listed. The 10 recommendations for Title I are as follows: (1) Teachers entrusted with the literacy development of U.S. children should be highly qualified; (2) Even the best teachers need professional development; (3) Schoolwide projects should address the needs of all students with particular attention to those most at risk of school failure; (4) Early intervention is critical; (5) Assessment needs to be ongoing and linked directly to instruction; (6) Accountability encourages involvement and enhances program effectiveness; (7) The services for children need to be coordinated to fit the needs of the child, not the child to the services; (8) Programs should be based on a wide range of research; (9) Parents need to be active partners in all programs; and (10) Decision making needs to be focused on each child and done by those who are closest to the child. It concludes with a list of related resources from the International Reading Association for each of the 10 recommendations. (SR)
