K-12 Literacy Curriculum & Instruction
What a child can do in cooperation today, he can do alone tomorrow.
Our literacy consultants work with communities in varying capacities. From program support for individual students to systemic reform of district literacy curricula. Grounded in constructivist learning theory and current research on teaching reading & writing, our consultants work to match curriculum objectives and activities with your students’ level of readiness. We seek to motivate, not frustrate, students and teachers in the process of learning to read, write and think. Our unique approach to professional development lies in our knowledge of research based instructional techniques balanced with a knowledge of human development.
