The educational outcome and long-term adverse effects data
from the State of Alaska paint a rather bleak picture for our future. The sad reality is that if we do not come together and do something to shift the narrative, then nothing will ever change.
There is hope to be found in the educational research that has been done across the past 50 years, combined with the traditional wisdom of our elders and ancestors. We truly believe that we have what it takes to create a positive change in the language and literacy development of all our future ancestors.
The keys to success are based on research and intergenerational knowledge, and encapsulated in our four core facets: Direct Instruction, Precision Teaching, Prosocial (PAX) Skills, and Self-Directed Education.
By starting at the community level, and building one Direct Instruction Literacy Coach at a time, we have the opportunity to change the trajectory of the data. For too long things have been stagnant - please join us in addressing the Global Literacy Challenge.
