RI Comprehensive Literacy Guidance

RIDE is deeply committed to ensuring literacy proficiency for ALL students and has created the Rhode Island Comprehensive Literacy Guidance (RICLG) in an effort to unify all state literacy initiatives for students from birth through grade 12.

This plan will influence the pre-service and in-service training of teachers educated and/or employed in the state of Rhode Island and articulates that all educators are responsible for literacy instruction birth through grade 12.

The RICLG supports educators in better understanding the components of literacy and implementation of best practices in daily instruction. Included are strategies, methods, and resources for assessment, intervention, and literacy in the content-areas. As educators look to ensure the literacy success of all students, the RICLG provides an abundance of resources and references.

The Rhode Island Comprehensive Literacy Guidance is a resource which provides practical information and resources to guide instruction and assessment. Included in the document are user-friendly charts that detail what effective practices look like and how to integrate these practices into teaching. In addition, this document can help with planning instructional and professional goals.
