About this Grantee

Mrs. Porter and her partners form a study group focusing on instructional reading strategies to improve the teaching of benchmarks on which students have not been performing well. With the help of a reading specialist, teachers research instructional strategies, visit schools where successful strategies are being used, and observe and critique each other’s classroom instruction. The group shares its findings with colleagues and makes a presentation about the classroom changes to parents and the board of education.
