Report highlights Curley K-8 literacy work

A new report from the Center for American Progress, "Putting the Pieces of the Puzzle Together: How Systematic Vocabulary Instruction and Expanded Learning Time Can Address the Literacy Gap," highlights Boston's work to improve adolescent literacy skills. The report describes Boston Public Schools' involvement with the Strategic Education Research Partnership (SERP) to strengthen reading fluency among middle school students. The Curley K-8 School is featured as a case study in the report for its implementation of Word Generation to build students' academic vocabulary across subject areas.
