Vision

 Virginia State Reading Association’s statewide initiative focuses on supporting educators as they integrate various types of nonfiction texts with the subject areas beginning in kindergarten and continuing throughout their school years.

Mission

We seek to improve students’ ability to navigate and compose informational texts by improving their comprehension of how text features, graphics, and text structures work. The statewide initiative will serve both parents and teachers by providing resources for parents and communities as they help grow Virginia’s next generation of readers who are motivated to read a broad range of information in an ever-changing world of information.  We will provide teachers with professional development support and resources including book lists and lesson plans (aligned with K-5 science and social studies SOLs) that support the integration of nonfiction literacy and the content areas.
