Oregon K-12 Literacy Framework - Reading: Videos & Presentations

Literacy FrameworkVideos and Presentations to introduce district and school staff to the Oregon K-12 Literacy Framework and to broaden and deepen understanding of Response to Intervention (RTI), central to the Framework, are provided below. In the video shorts, narrated by Brenda Braxton, members of the Literacy Leadership State Steering Committee (LLSSC), the group that designed and developed the Framework, provide observations your school teams will appreciate!

The videos and Presentations were designed for use as embedded professional development, the model used in the Framework and in RTI. Once grade and department-level meetings are established, literacy coaches and school and district staff provide professional development within that meeting structure. The Framework videos and Presentations are useful entry points for understanding the Framework prior to implementation.

Moving Reading Forward

"Moving Reading Forward" (10 minutes) is an overview of the Framework’s three levels (state, district, and school) and six components (Goals, Assessment, Instruction, Leadership, Professional Development, and Commitment). Viewers will understand the Framework’s “Big ideas” with minimal time invested.

Pathway to Reading

The first video short in "Pathway to Reading” describes the role of the school, district, and state in implementing a comprehensive reading program. The remaining six shorts provide key points and crisp educator perspectives for each component.
