Summary
The purpose of this research study was to examine Missouri middle school principals' perceptions of the adolescent literacy crisis and to ascertain how middle level principals are addressing adolescent literacy needs in their schools. The phenomenological qualitative research approach was selected due to the underpinning of the social constructivism and pragmatism paradigms of the research questions. Data sources included an open-ended online survey administered to a random sample of middle level principal and personal interviews. The research findings are based on the data collected from 50 research participants. Although there was not agreement regarding literacy being in a state of crisis, the study found consensus that literacy is a priority for middle level principals. Additionally, principals reported factors of family chaos, technology challenges, and expanded demands of literacy created additional challenges for adolescent literacy. According to the data, principals are addressing literacy needs through shared responsibility, varied delivery methods, and instructional leadership
