Introducing Whole Child LiteracyTM

We approach literacy skills development with a holistic lens on the unique variables surrounding each students’ learning ability and difference. Driven by research and evidence surrounding the science of reading, and an understanding the cognitive variables and socio-emotional influences of home and environment that may impact learning, we bring the latest research into practice, helping educators effectively customize their literacy instructional practices to meet each students’ specific needs, and building each student’s intellectual curiosity and confidence to spur academic growth and positively change their life achievement trajectories.

9 Effective Strategies for Educators to
Accelerate Literacy in California

California has a literacy problem and is investing in turning the tide with the goal of getting all students to read by the third grade by 2026. State Board President and founding president of the Learning Policy Institute, Dr. Linda Darling-Hammond, offers 9 keys to ending the reading struggle now, based on a recent study of California “positive outlier” districts that have bucked the trends for English learners and showed promising results in early literacy.

  1. Explicit instruction of foundational skills in K-1
  2. Rich literacy environments for K-3
  3. Extensive speaking and listening opportunities
  4. Connections between ELA and English language development
  5. Conscious integration of literacy work into all subjects
  6. Ongoing classroom formative assessment
  7. Individual and small group work
  8. Professional development
  9. Literacy coaches and reading specialists
