The purpose of this content analysis study was to identify opportunities embedded in selected reading programs that facilitate the development of social and emotional competencies in the context of literacy instruction. These competencies have been shown to strengthen academic performance and help children learn skills that accelerate success inside and outside of the classroom. The content analysis examined three commonly used third-grade core reading programs to identify content that focuses on social and emotional competencies and instructional processes important in teaching social and emotional skills to children. The study also sought to identify content and instructional processes that might be strengthened in the curriculum to provide greater opportunities for social and emotional growth. As a part of the investigation of core reading programs, current market information was used to identify the most recent editions of the most widely used core reading programs in the U.S.
