Expert Evaluator:

“I have read A MODEL SECONDARY (6-12) PLAN FOR READING INTERVENTION AND DEVELOPMENT and believe that it will be of significant value to secondary schools in Minnesota and elsewhere. It seems to me that its major value will be in alerting schools to the complexity of the situation, alerting them to the many possibilities for addressing it, and providing them with some of the resources necessary to do so. This is certainly something that schools need and will be fortunate to get.” - Michael F. Graves, Ph.D.
