Reading / Elementary Grades

This report systematically reviews research on the achievement outcomes of four types of approaches to improving the reading success of children in the elementary grades:

  • Reading Curricula
  • Instructional Technology
  • Instructional Process Programs
  • Combinations of Curricula and Instructional Process

The report combines the research from two separate Best Evidence Encyclopedia reviews: Effective Beginning Reading Programs: A Best-Evidence Synthesis and Beyond the Basics: Effective Reading Programs for the Upper Elementary Grades.
