Imagine instead of starting with minimal vocabulary basal readers, first, second and third grade students are able to read such books as Where the Wild Things Are, The Velveteen Rabbit and Charlotte's Web, respectively.

Imagine all students, whatever their socio-economic group, ethnicity or native language (even those at Title 1 schools or those in ESL/ELL programs), all succeeding in learning how to spell, write and read.

Imagine a recently completed four-year study by Arizona State University showing one group of students — using a particular method to learn how to spell, write and read — having significantly higher achievement test scores when compared to those using other reading programs.

And imagine a method where every parent and teacher can help children develop essential critical thinking skills and instill a love of learning and reading that will last a lifetime

It's called "The Writing Road to Reading©," an integrated, multisensory, research-based, language arts curriculum using the principles of instruction in The Spalding Method®. Training in "The Writing Road to Reading" curriculum is offered exclusively through Spalding Education International (SEI).

SEI's mission is to increase literacy for all children and adults by using The Spalding Method to develop skilled readers, critical listeners, and accomplished writers and spellers. The late Romalda B. Spalding, author of "The Writing Road to Reading," founded the organization in 1986. Now in its 6th revised edition, "The Writing Road to Reading" has stood the test of time because IT WORKS.

This video excerpt shows The Spalding Method in action in a 1st grade classroom. (To order the complete video or any other educational videos, visit our store: http://spalding.org/store/index.php.)

"The Writing Road to Reading" helps children develop essential critical thinking skills and instills a love of learning and reading that will last a lifetime. Instead of starting with minimal vocabulary basal readers, first, second and third grade students are able to read such books as Where the Wild Things Are, The Velveteen Rabbit and Charlotte's Web, respectively.

How can you achieve success with The Spalding Method? Simple. Success is achieved by those who invest in the authorized curriculum (including "The Writing Road to Reading" and Spalding's Teacher's Guides) AND commit to learning how to teach the curriculum with fidelity by enrolling in Spalding's Writing Road to Reading courses (http://www.spalding.org/index.php?tna...). Beware of unauthorized Spalding curriculum and training!
