Just Think Literacy: The Seminars in Critical Literacy™
Are you scrambling to create curricula that aligns with both modern global realities and the Common Core State Standards?
We can help. Ten years ago two teachers left their district’s curriculum-writing project to focus their efforts on creating a curriculum that was beholden to nothing but their dreams for their own children. The design they created and refined for the next decade immediately exceeded the standards of the day, and unbeknownst to them, their fidelity to their ideals was also guiding them through and beyond the Common Core State Standards that would eventually take their place. Over time, they have studied the critical elements of an excellent education in public and private schools and consulted with experts in math and science, so that their curriculum now anchors a comprehensive system for transforming schools into places for real thinking and understanding.
What We Do
The educators at Just Think Literacy™ help schools transform their literacy instruction. By supporting them in implementing our unique curriculum, The Seminars in Critical Literacy™, we help bring teachers and children into a new era of thinking, teaching and learning.
The SEMINARS reinforce the teacher’s role as the principal engineer and conductor of rich, meaningful, empowering literacy learning, engaging teachers in collaborative study of critical content and pedagogy.
My students have always been able to say the names of strategies they’ve learned, but now they’re going beyond those strategies to really understand what’s going on in the story and say amazing things about the books we read.
