Who We Are and What We Do

We are a group of teacher educators from Hunter College working alongside teachers and adminstrators to enhance literacy instruction and outcomes in K-2 classrooms in New York City's Community School District 4. Our work was funded by the New York Community Trust, Astor Fund.

The driving focus of READ East Harlem/Hunter College was to improve the literacy abilities of second-grade students in East Harlem. To do this, we worked alongside K-2 teachers to engage their diverse students in research‐supported critical reading comprehension instruction and practice.
