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.
