I don’t remember what methods my teachers used to teach me how to read, but I do remember that it all came together on while my family was traveling to Florida on a train for vacation. For me it felt like a binary thing–one minute I couldn’t read, and the next minute I could. I’ll assume that’s the desired outcome, even though we all known that literacy is much more of a progression. The progression happens more quickly with the right methods, and that’s what the Children’s Literacy Initiative is about. They are a Philadelphia, PA based non-profit “that works with teachers to transform instruction so that children can become powerful readers, writers and thinkers.” While most literacy focused non-profits work directly with children who are learning to read, CLI ensures that the people working with those children are properly prepared for such an important job.

Support This Initiative

When I was in high school I did some volunteer work at a nearby public school. I was tasked with helping a few kids with their reading, which meant that I sat with them and helped them work their way through a book. It was really hard. These kids were in third grade and still sounding out every word. It was frustrating for me, and I’m sure it was frustrating for the kids. I had no training, so I was just doing the best that I knew how to help. All kids deserve better than that, which is why CLI’s Modeling Exemplary Literacy Instruction is so important. It’s a proven model, and you can see the impact that it offers here. If you’d like to help CLI continue to help teachers better teach reading and writing skills, visit the organization’s Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Part-time Content Development Assistant.
