Technical Description from the ECRI website:
“The Exemplary Center for Reading Instruction (ECRI) is a program designed as a practical guide to teach reading and other language skills to students in grades K-12.
The Exemplary Center for Reading Instruction’s purpose is to teach teachers so they can use effective teaching strategies that prevent failure. These strategies include: eliciting accurate and rapid responses during instruction, establishing high levels of mastery, maintaining on-task behavior, integrating the teaching of language skills, using effective management and monitoring systems, varying schedules and classes so students can invest the time and energy needed to learn, and supervising students’ hands-on activities and practice. The strategies are incorporated into the teaching of reading, spelling, grammar, creative and expository writing, literature, speaking, and drama skills, and are extremely effective in content instruction such as science and social studies.
Students’ attention is sustained with the momentum of the instruction and reinforcement offered during practice time. Overt responses appeal to all preferred modalities of learning. Instruction is provided by ECRI so teachers can: utilize critical teacher behaviors identified through research, develop a class and/or school scheduling and record keeping system for mastery and individualization, and teach reading and language skills effectively.
Teachers learn to teach phonemic awareness, word recognition skills, vocabulary through phonics and word structure methods, literal, interpretative, critical and creative comprehension, study skills, literature, and composition as they use readers, literature series, novels, trade and content books typically available in the school.
Students demonstrate mastery through their participation in small-group discussions, writing, locating, organizing, and evaluating information as well as with criterion referenced tests written for the different reading and literature series and with standardized tests.
ECRI students demonstrate competency in their ability to reason, solve problems, apply knowledge, read, write, and communicate (National Goal 3). ECRI students remain in school longer because of their success in school and their higher academic scores (National Goal 2).
A description of ECRI is included in the “Catalog of the Education Commission of the States” as a Promising Practice, and was included in the “Catalog of School Reform Models” by the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory. Streamed Internet broadcasts showing ECRI classes can be viewed online ECRI is listed in John Hopkins University’s Best Evidence Encyclopedia (BEE) website as a program rated as having evidence of effectiveness for upper elementary reading.”
