CODE’s Model of Development
Reading CODE is our model of development, the means by which we take action to extend the benefits of literacy.
Reading CODE is a comprehensive readership initiative based on the two key elements essential to successfully developing and sustaining literacy: that of the need for interesting books, relevant to the readers, and written in languages the readers understand; and
meaningful engagement with these books through high quality teaching. To make sure literacy initiatives take root and yield results over the long term, Reading CODE joins these two
elements with a third: effective partnerships that build the capacity of national organizations so that they can continue to provide engaging learning materials to readers, and offer high-quality
training for educators. Completing the model is the fourth element, a carefully designed approach to monitoring and focused assessment that helps capture results, informs practice
and guides both on-going and long term decision-making.
