District, School, and Teacher Support Toolbox

The Ohio Department of Education strives to build a solid literacy foundation for all students through the implementation of quality language and literacy practices. The purpose of this toolbox is to assist districts, schools and teachers in implementing evidence-based language and literacy instruction and has organized available tools around instruction, lesson design, and assessment. Materials contained in Ohio’s Early Literacy Toolbox are drawn from both internal and external sources and will evolve over time. Materials and resources posted are for informational use only.

The Ohio Department of Education aims to increase student achievement through improving language and literacy outcomes for all students. A successful language and literacy framework is built on five interrelated components—teacher capacity, shared leadership, multi-tiered systems of support, parent partnerships and community collaboration.

The Literacy Academy provided technical assistance and professional learning to improve language and literacy development.
