Oregon K-12 Literacy Framework - Reading: INSTRUCTION

High quality reading instruction in the Oregon K-12 Literacy Framework involves the integration of six organizing principles.

  • Sufficient time for reading instruction is scheduled, and the allocated time is used effectively.

  • Data is used to form fluid instructional groupings.

  • Instruction is focused on the essential elements of reading.

  • Research-based strategies, programs, and materials are adopted and used schoolwide with a high level of fidelity.

  • Instruction is differentiated based on student need.
  • Effective teacher delivery features are incorporated into daily reading instruction.

The Oregon K-12 Literacy Framework is aligned to Response to Intervention (RTI).

The purpose of the Oregon K-12 Literacy Framework is to ensure that ALL students read at grade level or above as soon as possible after entering school, and that they continue to advance in grade-level reading skills each year across the instructional areas in grades 4-12. For students reading below grade-level, schools specify how they will provide the strongest reading instruction and interventions possible to help students read at grade level.
