Welcome! We hope you enjoy exploring this site and will find the resources here useful. We'll be adding new things regularly, so check back often. 

Our Purposes:

•  to present a broader perspective on research-based literacy learning and teaching than is currently available from much of the professional literature, government publications, and mainstream media

•  to share the knowledge we have gleaned from our decades of working directly with teachers and children in classrooms and clinics

•  to provide a safe and supportive forum for fellow educators to share experiences, raise questions, and discuss best practices

The International Literacy Educators Coalition (ILEC) promotes best practices for the teaching of literacy. Their Info Drops are excellent sources of information.
