Literacy Instruction Practice Profiles
The Florida Department of Education’s Literacy Instruction Practice Profiles for Grades PreK-5 and 6-12 clearly define evidence-based instructional practices of core reading instruction in a way that is teachable, learnable, doable and assessable in practice. The practice profiles feature five core components: explicit instruction, systematic instruction, scaffolded instruction, corrective feedback and differentiated instruction. The goals of the Grades PreK-5 and 6-12 Literacy Instruction Practice Profiles are to increase the understanding of evidence-based practices in delivering literacy instruction. The practice profiles are grounded in research, aligned to Florida’s Formula for Success, and correspond to Florida’s Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking Standards (K-12) and the Florida Early Learning and Developmental Standards for Language and Literacy (PreK).
