As a teacher who has been expected to implement a number of literacy programs over my career, it was a huge surprise to come across Children's Literacy Initiative! The outstanding components of their program, for me, are an in depth and coherent understanding of how children acquire literacy skills and comprehension - a love of learning-, and the fact that while every teacher is given a series of training workshops, that is only the beginning. For the rest of the year, or a multi-year commitment, they also receive on-site, individualized coaching designed to help them not just implement best practices, but become so comfortable with them that they can apply what they learn to their teaching in the future. Based on intensive understanding of the research, CLI is able to bring early literacy skills to disadvantaged children, yet not at the cost of the social/emotional and play components of these grades. How cool is that?

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In Brooklyn, where early reading and vocabulary skills of both Pre-K and Kindergartens has exceeded any previous outcomes. 4 year olds run up to me to discuss a new "3 Little Pigs" version I've brought, and in computer, they read on-screen instructions!
