Minnesota Center for Reading Research

The mission of the Minnesota Center for Reading Research (MCRR) is to conduct applied research on reading and teaching approaches that facilitate reading instruction. Our focus is on conducting research that supports teachers, particularly those who teach students of poverty, as they learn to effectively teach children and youth from diverse backgrounds, to become competent readers in K-12 school settings. We work to develop all students’ reading capabilities and eliminate the achievement gap in reading for underserved populations. The MCRR provides support for applied research in reading in school settings, and we also champion basic research that will have an impact on literacy instruction and student learning.
