OVERVIEW OF THE INSTITUTE OF READING DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS AND GOALShttp://www.readingprograms.org
The Institute of Reading Development's services are a product of our enthusiasm and excitement about reading, as well as an expression of gratitude and appreciation for the formative role reading has played in our lives.
Our core mission - to make reading good books a central and vital part of the lives of children and adults - reflects The Institute of Reading Development's belief that reading is one of the most wonderful experiences available to us.
In seeking to fulfill our mission, the Institute of Reading Development has:
* Created reading development curriculum for all age groups that integrates skills instruction and meaningful experience with good books.
* Established uniquely effective partnerships with educational and community service organizations nationwide (community partners) to bring summer reading programs to their communities.
