1999 NRP (National Reading Panel) Progress Report - In 1997, the U.S. Congress created the National Reading Panel and charged them to determine, from existing research, the most effective approaches for teaching children how to read, with the hope that these findings might influence teaching in the classroom and home. This progress report summarizes the findings from five regional meetings designed to understand how reading instruction is perceived by those who work with children, as well as to discuss the validity and reliability of reading research. The report also identifies the panel's next focus areas, including: defining literacy, what and how to teach, classroom readiness and school issues related to reading.
