Adolescent literacy is a topic of great importance to many educators, policymakers, and the public. This critical issue is the focus of new legislative efforts, research studies, and instructional changes.
Essential components of a successful program can be determined by defining what one means by the word literacy and developing a conceptual framework based on that definition.Many reformers claim one of the most important characteristics of an effective school is strong instructional leadership. Instructional leaders must have a deep understanding of the processes of teaching and learning, including knowledge of new teaching methods, student construction of knowledge, and skills in problem solving.
