The HILL works closely with districts and school leaders to partner with them to identify their unique strengths and needs, and in developing strategic action plans for literacy or special embedded training.
The HILL offers a variety of workshops to train your teachers in the best research and evidence-based practices.
Additional Training Opportunities
To supplement our whole school change initiatives and core workshops, the HILL also offers an array of conferences, webinars, and online courses.
We also often partner with the Center on Teaching and Learning at the University of Oregon to conduct research studies and projects so we can stay ahead of the curve in bringing HILL districts the most current and effective strategies for improving literacy.
Connecticut K-3 Literacy Initiative (CK3LI)
HILL for Literacy is a partner in the Connecticut K-3 Literacy Initiative (CK3LI) funded through legislation developed by General Assembly’s Black and Puerto Rican Caucus to train teachers and administrators in the best research-based literacy practices and address the state’s achievement gap – one of the worst in the country – from the earliest grades. We participated in the pilot study and in SY 14-15 we brought our literacy leadership training to many districts across the state. The initiative began in 2012 and participating schools are already seeing tremendous growth in their scores.
