The Evidence Base for Collaborative Literacy

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) replaced No Child Left Behind in December 2015. This federal education legislation emphasizes state and local control, providing school districts with the flexibility to determine appropriate curricula and interventions for their schools. The levels of evidence define the study criteria.

The chart below identifies the ESSA evidence level for Collaborative Literacy. In Collaborative Literacy, reading instruction occurs in Being a Reader and writing instruction occurs in Being a Writer
