To support their “New York City Engagement Project: Transforming Teacher Practice in Reading Comprehension.” ReadWorks has expanded and improved their research-based reading comprehension curriculum and guidance, and successfully implemented their open-access model to disseminate the most effective, research-proven instructional practices. They have focused on product development and have a critical mass of users and are now ready to support the rapid iteration of their product. The grant will support two key members of their team that add senior leadership depth and expertise in engagement and communications strategies – a Director of Teacher Support and Communications and a Manager of Teacher Support and Social Media. They will play the primary role in developing and maintaining a deep engagement and R&D information loop ecosystem across all functional areas, to ultimately improve teacher practice and student achievement in reading comprehension.
