On Teaching Children to Read

A brief by Dr. George Hruby

Supporting Readers Who Struggle

The International Literacy Association—the world’s foremost reading teacher association—has recently released its Resource Collections for readers in need of literacy development support. There is one for pre-K through elementary students and one for adolescent and adult learners. They provide evidence-based, practitioner-friendly content carefully curated by educators and researchers—from recorded sessions and peer-reviewed journal articles to magazine features and research-based instructional practices. To review the materials, see: https://www.literacyworldwide.org/get-resources/resource-collections

Imagination Library Kentucky Project

The premise of the Imagination Library is registered children from birth to age 5 receive one age-appropriate book each month in the mail at no cost at all to the child or family. CCLD’s project enhances the book dissemination platform with videos and resources developed around each book. The key target audiences for which these videos are being developed are the children and their families.

In Their Own Words Video Series

The Collaborative Center for Literacy Development and The Kentucky Reading Association are collaborating to initiate conversations with literacy researchers and professionals to solicit their views and discover upcoming projects.

Adolescent Literacy Advisory Services

CCLD provides advisory services to districts and schools for the improvement of adolescent reading, as well as high-quality teacher professional development through our Adolescent Literacy Project model.
