We’re launching a campaign to spread the word about REAP’s goals to improve literacy in public school students. Train | Teach | Read is the very essence of what we do.
We train public school teachers in Orton-Gillingham, which gives them a variety of skills and tools to teach reading more effectively, and to break through to struggling readers.
We teach the teachers how to implement these skills and tools in a public school classroom. They teach their students to read using systematic, phonics-based, multisensory instruction.
The students learn to read using skills and strategies that build a solid reading foundation. Struggling readers become confident readers and good readers become even stronger.
So far we’ve trained hundreds of public school teachers in metro Atlanta, and there are many more that need this training to build stronger readers in their schools. We need your help to continue to provide teachers with this free, high-quality training.
Can you help us meet our year-end goal of $30,000? Every dollar counts! Your donation will help enable us to impact 1,150 readers.
From the Foundation:
“The Kay W. Cantrell Foundation is honored to support organizations like REAP. Our foundation supports literacy, learning differences, childhood diseases & conditions, and mental health. We believe that early identification, intervention, and evidence based remediation is key to providing the students the tools they need to be successful in learning to read. Because of REAP’s focus in literacy with teacher training in public schools using the Orton-Gillingham approach, we chose their organization. REAP’s passionate leaders, Jen Rhett and Carla Stanford and grass root organization are to be applauded in all that they have accomplished thus far. We wish them the best in the future.”
