This practical, up-to-date guide to effectively managing the many facets of a reading/writing program helps school-based administrators and district supervisors deal with the increasing demands they face daily. From creating a literacy philosophy to developing a multidimensional assessment program, the book touches on virtually every major responsibility and issue supervisors and administrators are likely to confront. It addresses the specific needs of the district role and the school-based role, as well as the areas pertinent to both. And it includes cutting edge issues such as flexible grouping, censorship, whole language, controversial materials, and services for special needs students. The book is complete with practical guidelines, extensive resources, and specific examples applicable to elementary, middle, and high school programs. Specific procedures for many processes are provided, including selecting textbooks and nonprint materials, implementing change, conducting classroom demonstrations, and developing staff. Also included are descriptions of key studies and reference literature, sample forms, lists of publishers (including those that publish student writing), a text friendliness checklist, and resource lists for professionals, parents, and students.
