Did the U.S. Department of Education promote the use of the three-tier model of instruction?
The three-tier model is a reading instruction plan promoted by the three technical assistance centers funded by the U.S. Department of Education. Although it lacks any evidence of effectiveness and was mentioned in only three state’s proposals, it has been aggressively promoted among Reading First schools nationally, pushing out alternative models with far better evidence of effectiveness. 5. Has the U.S. Department of Education fulfilled the Reading First Act’s emphasis on scientifically-based reading research? Although Reading First administrators and consultants speak about the importance of “scientifically-based reading research” (SBRR), research has in fact played almost no role in programs or practices promoted by Reading First. To the contrary, Reading First has promoted the use of commercial basal textbooks, supplementary texts, assessments, and professional development with little or no evidence of effectiveness in preference to well-researched alternatives.
