Toolkit for Serving Out-of-School Youth with Low Literacy LevelsThe Center for Literacy, with the consultant support of noted researchers, has developed a Toolkit for Serving Out-of-School Youth with Low Literacy Levels. With sponsorship from the Youth Transition Funders Group, CFL pioneered this toolkit for serving out-of-school youth who are reading at the beginning and pre-intermediate literacy levels. This comprehensive toolkit includes standards and indicators, lesson plans, literature review, and professional development. It can be customized to accommodate the individual needs of each student with a framework that is easy to integrate into existing initiatives and enhances professional development programs.
In the first year of implementation of the toolkit, the initial group of youth gained two to three reading grade levels in four months of instruction (representing a total of approximately 24 hours of instruction). These initial outcomes suggest the toolkit can be an invaluable component in developing a well-balanced, comprehensive strategy for addressing the complex issues that both out-of-school and in-school youth face in learning to read.
The toolkit enables teachers to tailor instructional content to the unique learning style of an individual. Once reintegrated into a structured, supportive learning environment, at-risk youth show significant growth in academic, social and emotional development.
