- Adolescent Literacy Overview
Adolescent literacy has, for many years, been a forgotten area as educators have focused their attention on early literacy, in particular, Grades K–3. However, in the last few years adolescent literacy has gained more attention as policy makers and educators realize that literacy is a critical issue even as students transition into the middle and high school settings. In a recent press release (2004) President Bush proposed the Striving Readers Initiative, a program for middle and high school students that complements the elementary Reading First program. Both the Striving Readers Initiative and Reading First are part of the larger No Child Left Behind Act (2002). [Formerly NCREL]
