The article discusses the U.S. school reform model Literacy Collaborative, started by educators Irene Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell. The program is said to improve teacher-student interaction, to emphasize in-class assessment of student reading progress, and to use a school literacy coach. This is said to aid teacher professional development (PD) to help teachers to coach their students, though it is also noted that the model is expensive for schools.
