New York City Public Schools Teach Students to Read

I just returned from New York City where I had the opportunity to work with schools in the New York City Public school district. I visited several middle schools and high schools and met with teachers, conducted teacher trainings, and taught a couple high school classes where I did some model teaching of how the Reading Horizons method can be implemented in the classroom. I was impressed with the dedication of the teachers and their desires to help their students reach their full potential.

I worked closely with a few administrators from the district, as well, who are dedicated to supporting the teachers in their network. One of these administrators, Dr. Janine Caffrey, shares a video on her blog that demonstrates the teachers' potential to change the world by helping their students reach their full potential and teaching them how to read. The video showcases teachers participating in a Reading Horizons teacher training. It can be viewed on her blog by clicking here.
