MEET THE TEAM
Friends on the Block was written by experts in reading instruction. Through the funding of a federal grant, the authors were able to study the effectiveness of the literacy program while it was being created. This allowed the authors to monitor student success with the literacy program and make revisions and edits throughout the study in order to make the curriculum as effective and enjoyable as possible.
Although the authors' backgrounds vary, they are united in their desire to help every child learn to read, particularly those who require intensive intervention. They are excited to share Friends on the Block with you and hope you find success with it.
