Program Overview

There are not enough resources available to dedicate to school change. We can't wait for schools to catch up. Students need our help now. We match literacy professional development with a school's, a teacher's, and a parent's capacity to change. This is our specialty.English teachers cannot do this alone.

History, science, and CTE teachers take a lead role in supporting literacy and higher-order thinking about meaningful nonfiction content. We know how to make this work without adding stress to non-ELA teachers.Schools cannot do this alone. Using similar strategies, parents are supporting nonfiction reading at home They understand how important nonfiction literacy is to their children's journey after high school.

Outcomes include: producing college-level notes, identifying main ideas, writing summaries, creating graphic organizers, questioning beyond the text, identifying similarities and differences, citing evidence, and producing clear pre-writing.
