This inventory of materials resources, and instructional approaches used by Illinois school districts in their elementary reading programs is being compiled by the Studies and Research Committee of the Illinois Reading Council.

Such information should be helpful to many:

  • Districts who are researching programs and planning staff development

  • Colleges of education in preparing pre-service teachers for what they will meet in their schools

  • Educational researchers

  • Staff developers


If you would like your district to be included in this inventory, contact one of our committee members. Click on Contact Us in the menu bar at the left.
