The Commission on Reading of the National Council of Teachers of English regularly undertakes projects to broaden discussion of important literacy issues and to provide support for teachers as they make informed instructional decisions. Commission members developed the matrix that follows in response to requests from NCTE members for sound, standards-aligned criteria to apply as they select program materials or design local programs of instruction in reading. It is intended to be used as part of professional discussion among colleagues.
