dc.description.abstract The purpose of this project was to review a selection of Dr. Richard Allington’s contributions to literacy instruction, and particularly on his scholarship on the development of reading instruction. In Chapter 1 I explain the rationale for the project, describe personal motivations for improving my own practice as it relates to reading instruction, give insight into why Allington’s work is of interest to educators, and connect Allington’s scholarship to provincial curriculum. In Chapter 2 I examine Allington’s philosophy of reading instruction and reading theories in general before reviewing Allington’s work around supporting readers who struggle. In Chapter 3 I summarize his work on summer reading loss and response to intervention. In Chapter 4 I explain how the PowerPoint presentation entitled, “Every Child, Every Day: Dr. Richard Allington’s Scholarship on the Six Essential Elements of Effective Reading Instruction” connects to Allington’s research. The professional development workshop, designed to provide teachers with information and methods they can use to support the development of the six principles outlined by Allington and Rachael Gabriel, serves as a culmination of my review of Allington’s research for the project. The PowerPoint slides created for the professional development workshop are in the appendix. In Chapter 4 I also include recommendations for future research and share my reflections on the process of completing the project for my Master’s of Education. en_US
