Move your School’s Literacy Goals to your School’s Literacy Growth

We specialize in research-based K-12 literacy pedagogy.

Our primary purpose is to empower teachers to provide high quality reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language instruction so all students can achieve high levels of literacy success.

Our Four Systems Model™️

For effective students growth in reading, writing, and language development, schools require focus and interaction between four key systems. Our professional development is designed to support each and their interconnectedness.

  • Focused Literacy Leadership and Coaching
    • Systems require streamlined and focused literacy leadership and expert instructional coaching.
  • Literacy- and Language-Rich Environment
    • Students require continuous opportunities to see, hear, speak, and compose literacy.
  • Evidence-Based Tier 1 Instruction
    • Ensuring our hard work as educators is the most effective and efficient as possible to support ALL students.
  • Responsive Differentiation
    • Structures and methods to make differentiation manageable and meaningful, including Tier 2 and specialist supports.

On-Site Work with The Educator Collaborative: You Classrooms, Your Kids, Your Goals

Districts typically engage with us from anywhere from 5 to 25 days across a school year. During visits, consultants work hands-on, in your classrooms, with you and your colleagues.

We demonstrate state-of-the-art practices, lead educators in immediately practicing methods with students, followed by collecting and analyzing student work.

During visits, consultants also support administrators and coaches in developing literacy leadership practices that facilitate adult learning and help educators grow to meet their own professional goals.

Unlike some providers, we do not push a product or sell a boxed program. We work with you and your existing curriculum and help teachers use researched best-practices to support students. We know no textbook or teacher’s guide takes the place of knowledgeable and reflective educators.
