Reading First, Title I B under the No Child Left Behind Act, is a national initiative designed to support states in making every child a proficient reader (reading at or above grade level) by the end of third grade.  It is the largest early reading initiative in history.  The focus of Reading First is on classroom learning in schools identified as having high-needs and high expectationsfor student achievement.  The themes of the Reading First model identify leadership, professional development for all K-3 educators, implementation of research based curricular materials, ongoing progress monitoring and immediate intensive intervention for students academically at risk for reading achievement, as the crucial elements for student success.  An additional component of the Reading First model is having an on-site reading coach.  The reading coach serves as a resource for teachers to assist them in the implementation of scientifically based programs, data analysis, intervention needs, and differentiating instruction for their students.
