Framework for Planning, Implementing, and Evaluating PreK-3rd Grade Approaches

(Kauerz and Coffman, 2013)

The Framework helps to address key questions facing those who are developing PreK-3rd grade approaches in their school, district, or community:

  • What does a comprehensive PreK-3rd grade approach include?
  • The word “alignment” is used often, but what needs to be aligned?
  • What kinds of changes need to take hold in adults’ behaviors before we can expect to see improvements in child outcomes?
  • What kinds of responsibilities need to be shared among 0-5 programs, grades K-3, families, and communities?

It is best if the Framework is printed on large paper. Two formats are provided here – legal size (8.5” x 14”) and ledger size (11” x 17”).
