Principal's Primer is a “how-to” manual for principals who are dissatisfied with their students’ reading achievement and who want to improve the overall reading performance of an elementary or middle school population. It explains in very practical terms exactly how a principal can lead a school to implement research-based, multitier reading instruction and achieve optimal results, especially with students from economically, socially, or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds.
