1999 NRP Progress Report
The Interim Report of the National
Reading Panel (NRP) details the Panel's progress from
its origin in 1997, when Congress requested the formation
of a national panel, through February 22, 1999. At that
point in 1999, the Panel was still in the process of
completing its charge of assessing the status of research-based
knowledge of reading development and disability.
You may read the Interim Report and
an introductory letter to Dr. Duane Alexander, the Director
of the National Institute of Child Health and Human
Development, from Dr. Donald N. Langenberg, the Chair
of the NRP.
The Interim Report is NOT the
final report of the NRP. On April 13, 2000, the NRP
released the Report of the National Reading Panel, "Teaching
Children to Read," which details all of its findings.

Report and the Reports of
