The Community Reading Project started as a university thesis on how to help reading-disabled students in an affordable way.
We are volunteers, tutors, and reading activists. We embrace Action Research, a reflective process of progressive problem solving that attempts to develop a “community of practice”. Our goal is to improve our own understanding of helping students with severe reading deficits, and foster a community dialog recognizing that reading failure is both unacceptable and fixable.
Many of us have graduate degrees. Some of us are teachers ourselves, so we have perspective on education problems from the other side as well. We know there is a better way.
