IER has developed the Comprehensive Literacy Framework in order to bring to teachers a clear, concise picture of research-supported strategies that will help every child become a competent reader and writer. The Framework is the foundation for IER’s literacy work within the school community, and includes strategies for Reading, Writing and Word Study, that can be incorporated across the curriculum in whole group, small group and individual settings.  Strategies included in the CLF are appropriate for diverse classrooms, as they enable teachers to differentiate their teaching to meet children’s needs.
