The R03 funding mechanism is offered by most all of the NIH Institutes and Centers and serves as an excellent first Research R grant award to enable investigators to obtain pilot data needed for a R01 or other major grant award. Each session focuses on a different part of the grant with emphasis on strategies to improve communication of ideas. Prior to each session, participants will send their latest version of the relevant section to all R03 writing group members and the faculty facilitator. This grant writing program will not focus on the scientific content and research design of the planned R03 award application.
One of the most important of these is that raising the level of literacy for children is an act of social justice. John Dewey, one of the founders of Teachers College, wrote: Our work aims to prepare kids for any reading and writing task they will face or set themselves, to turn writing and research activities planned into life-long, confident readers and writers who display agency and independence in their future endeavors.
That is, our aims reach beyond state testing and fulfillment of tasks for schools. We aim to strengthen a generation of readers and writers.
To achieve these goals, the Reading and Writing Project supports teachers, administrators, and school change agents with professional development, curriculum, and instructional methods. The work of the Reading and Writing Project is informed by research in all of these areas as well as the more specialized categories of literacy.
Turning children into readers through an emphasis on a high volume of high-success, high- interest reading: TCRWP reading instruction relies on research that shows that kids need to read a lot of texts, with high comprehension, in order to move up levels of text complexity.
TCRWP reading workshops are structured to allow for students to read eyes on print every day for minutes in the reading workshop.
Volume is vigilantly watched. Anderson, Wilson, and Fielding researched the relationship between the amount of reading done and reading achievement. More recently, in her article, Independent Reading and School Achievement, Cullinan reviewed the research on the effects of independent reading for the purpose of informing policy makers, curriculum developers, parents, teachers, and librarians about the importance of independent reading and programs that support it.
The review concludes that independent reading, defined as the reading students choose to do, supports learning and school achievement. Providing students with protected reading time is necessary in order to support their growth in reading. Teachers re-assess often with informal running records in independent reading novels and many schools conduct more formal running records least times a year.
Teachers closely monitor both reading volume and progress up levels. Multiple studies have found specifically that matching readers to texts supports growth in reading.
There is little research available, however, to support the idea of readers reading texts which are too challenging for them.
The authors review research on text complexity and learning to read and come away with two major conclusions: The authors conclude by contending that in order for students to become proficient readers, they must read texts which match their independent reading levels.
To progress as readers, readers must have ample time to read a lot and they must have texts they can read independently. The following are some of the sources we recommend consulting to learn more about the research in this area: What research says about text complexity and learning to read.
