Reading reform starts with you.

If you're a parent, talk to your kids. Talk to your kids' teachers. Find out what's going on. And most importantly, take the time to read with your children at home.

If you're a teacher, you can make change in your school. While Bearden and Walton have both embraced reform but are at different stages of the process, both are good examples of how a few people can work together to make a difference.

In this section you'll find discussion guides for parents, teachers, and community groups and a lot of other resources.
