ABSTRACT
Teachers unfamiliar with the development of interactive and engaging small-group reading stations, or literacy centers, were introduced to new approaches in this six-month partnership project. Information was focused on independent reading, library and resource systems, and self-monitoring activities. Transitions were categorized in terms of stages for more comfortable movement between levels of implementation. All teachers moved at least one level up as they observed models by the researchers engaged in reading, and collaborated during grade level meetings. A checklist of steps is provided in the article for more specific reference by preservice and practicing teachers.
