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

"An experimental study of letter-sound behavior turns the subject's purpose for reading into sounding out letters, not the construction of meaning. These are qualitatively different phenomena." (Steven Strauss, 2005)
