Time to Act: An Agenda for Advancing Adolescent Literacy for College
and Career Success

Time to Act pinpoints adolescent literacy as a cornerstone of the
current education reform movement, upon which efforts such as the
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act must be built. The report's
recommendations intersect with the $4.35 billion Race to the Top
competitive grant guidelines with their emphasis on standards and
assessments, data systems, great teachers and leaders, and
re-engineering struggling schools.

Time to Act is the capstone report of Carnegie Council for Advancing
Adolescent Literacy (Council). Since 2004, under the direction of
Council Chairperson Catherine Snow, professor in the Harvard Graduate
School of Education, the Council has gathered knowledge and ideas from
experts nationwide on topics ranging from linguistics to the social
science of teaching. Time to Act is released with five corresponding
reports, which delve deeper into how to advance literacy and learning
for all students, including such topics as the cost of implementing
adolescent literacy programs and reading in the disciplines.
