New Tactics on Reading at Middle Schools – SchoolBook:

Reviving an effort begun years ago to improve low-performing middle schools, New York City is changing tactics and concentrating on improving reading and writing skills.

The new plan is the second phase of a campaign started in 2008 by the City Council and the city’s Education Department to bolster student performance at 51 of the lowest-performing middle schools. Three years later, the department and Council have rethought their approach and moved on — to an almost entirely different batch of 18 schools, where they plan to train teachers in literacy instruction for students who read at a third- or fourth-grade level.
