What is the HILL Model?
It's Evidence-BasedOur model is based on years of scientific research and experience in the area of whole-school language and literacy transformation.
It's ProvenWe have improved reading scores in high poverty, multilingual, and multicultural schools and districts by 20 – 40%. Strong school leadership helps to bring about literacy improvement.
It's Careful Attention and TimeWe implement a phased approach in which knowledge, focus, and commitment are used as building blocks to create long-term sustainable results.
It's a Collaborative PartnershipWe meet you where you are. We work with your data, teachers, and materials. We fill-in content or literacy gaps and give you customized PD that fits your needs.
Systemic and Sustainable
School districts are the front line of defense against illiteracy. Choosing an approach, implementing a literacy improvement process, evaluating results, and refining action plans all require focus and commitment for long-term change initiatives.
The HILL partners with school districts to shape and guide the process, deploying science-based whole school change through leadership development, teacher training, supportive coaching, and a culture of accountability. The results? Sustained, systemic improvements in literacy.
The HILL can help you strengthen your school or district, empower your teachers, and give more students the gift of literacy. And, you’ll see measurable, reportable results that illustrate your success.
