Yuen Family Foundation Scholar Jeff Williams on Reading Recovery and CCSS

Jeff Williams, of Solon City Schools in Solon, OH, recently wrote an article in the Journal of Reading Recovery examining how Common Core State Standards implementation may influence classroom instruction and answering questions that educators might have about Reading Recovery in the context of the Common Core.

The article explores the six strands of the CCSS, and provides tables showing how Reading Recovery teaching practices align with these strands, using Grade 1 as an example.

Last year, Jeff was one of two recipients of Hameray's Yuen Family Foundation Teacher Leader Scholarship. Jeff recommends the use of books from   The Joy Cowley Collection   and the   Kaleidoscope Collection   to aid in reading instruction.
