Bring Us To Your School

Keys to Literacy truly jump started and redefined the way we teach writing at Cawley Middle School.  Our teachers have a common and consistent vocabulary that is shared across grade levels.  Keys to Literacy has been instrumental in working with our teachers to design authentic writing experiences for our students.  As a result of our work with Keys to Literacy we now have a structure in place with clear expectations for teaching writing.

We have had a wonderful experience working with KTL.  It’s great to have such an engaged think partner when developing high quality PD for educators. From the planning to the delivery, they are organized, committed and are very well received by teachers.

Keys to Literacy epitomizes the high quality service provider. They are innovative, strategic, consistent in keeping up with the latest research-based instructional practices, and consummate professionals who tailor their work to the needs of your district. By far, they are one of the best PD providers I have worked with over the past ten years.

KTL Comprehension is changing the way Burlington teachers are instructing their students. It has brought much-needed consistency to the strategies teachers in grades 6-12 are using in their own content curriculum in all secondary grades. The trainers are knowledgable, energetic, and fun. Most importantly, our teachers are finding the strategies presented to them useful and beneficial to all students.
— Renee Sacco, District Literacy Coach, Burlington, MA
Keys to Literacy PD gets rave reviews from our teachers. The best thing about it is that the strategies the teachers are learning can be used in any grade and any discipline.
— Patrick Larkin, Assistant Superintendent for Learning, Burlington Public Schools, MA

Our district has been working with the Keys to Literacy team for the past several years. Their approachable, highly knowledgeable presenters utilized an interactive and real-world presentation style that won over staff trust. One area that we found highly valuable was receiving research-based strategies that could be used across all content areas. The strategies are simple and effective.  The books received for the sessions summarize the very best strategies for reading and learning for all students. It is clearly one of the best PD providers I have ever worked with.

— Dr. Maria Hoffmaster, Assistant Superintendent/Curriculum and Instruction, Poland Local Schools
