HILL for Literacy is an organization comprised of literacy experts who are staff and consultants from many fields including Special Education, Administration, Speech Language Pathology, Reading, Early Childhood, English-Language Learning, Psychology, Technology, and Teaching. We also partner with the some of the premier education research centers in the US.
We develop and deploy sustainable literacy programs in our nation’s schools using the best evidence- and research-based practices. We start at the top and build leadership teams, recommend curricula, train teachers and reading personnel, introduce evaluation methodologies and assessment systems, and provide support throughout the process to ensure success.
HILL for Literacy is a nonprofit dedicated to whole school change. Our goal is to teach every child to read by the end of the third grade. So many of us take reading for granted, but your support can have a tangible, meaningful impact on the lives of school children in HILL districts, and help us expand our reach to more schools and districts nation-wide.
With a grant from the A.D. Makepeace Company, HILL for Literacy and the Carver Public Schools formed a partnership to provide professional development and support for literacy education for schools in southeastern Massachusetts. The Makepeace Literacy Leadership Center is used daily for a variety of literacy training and sharing activities. Since its inception, the center has trained over 2,000 teachers from more than 55 districts.
