When we partner with a school, we organize and enrich the existing literacy elements. We provide customized training, building on the strengths and experience of the teachers and integrating the literacy efforts classroom by classroom. To make lasting change, the whole system needs to participate in designing goals, and remain involved in the improvement efforts. We systematically facilitate this effort.
Having an informed, efficient system for collecting, organizing, and managing the use of student assessment data is crucial in sustaining effective practices. Data collection and analysis should permeate all aspects of school-wide literacy reform. We install routines that foster data-driven instruction to accelerate student literacy learning and Continuum provides online tools to support and guide the process.
The odds of improving student literacy increase dramatically when engaged and informed leaders drive and support the high-fidelity implementation of evidence-based literacy programs. We help front-line literacy leaders put research into practice within their own fast-moving and complex organizations.
Our methods are based on years of scientific research and experience in the area of whole school literacy transformation. In order to stay on the cutting edge, we partner with two of the premier education research centers in the country: the University of Oregon’s Center on Teaching and Learning (CTL) and the University of Connecticut’s Center for Behavioral Education & Research (CBER).
