Supporting Michigan Learners Toward Excellence in Reading

This documentary, produced with Detroit Public Television, explores strategies used by two Michigan districts to accelerate reading growth for young learners. In the program, educators and leaders from Detroit Public Schools Community District discuss how district and school leaders can support educators to provide high-quality, research-based instruction rooted in the science of reading and aligned with structured language and literacy. The program also features educators and leaders from Chippewa Hills School District, who discuss their experiences with integrating data-based individualization to intensify the use of research-based instruction for students with individualized needs. The program includes comments by Dr. Michael Rice, Michigan state superintendent, and researchers Dr. Doug Fuchs, Dr. Sarah Arden, Dr. Dia Jackson (AIR) and Dr. Jill Bowdon (REL Midwest).
