Iowa Reading Research Center
Are you looking for the information about literacy to share with staff, parents, board members, or the public? The place to go to get that information is the Iowa Reading Research Center (IRRC) website. The center’s purpose is to apply current research for the development of literacy across Iowa.
The most recent information shared by the IRRC is about the current state of literacy instruction
in Iowa. The three regents universities surveyed educational staff across Iowa to find out what is currently being done with literacy instruction. A report summarizing those findings is located on
the IRRC website.
The IRRC website also has information on the following topics:
•Reading assessments •Data reporting system
•Evidence-based interventions and strategies •Early literacy framework
•Summer reading program •Professional learning
•Parent resources and information
