Talk to Read© Collaborative:

A Literacy Recovery Project

Teachers, instructional coaches, and researchers join forces to bring Talk to Read© to classrooms.

Funded by the US Dept. of Education, this $4 million dollar grant project serves high-needs schools over five years, 2021-2026. Teachers participate for one year in professional learning developed by the eMINTS National Center and the University of Missouri - College of Education and Human Development. The project will serve 46 schools, 96 teachers, and over 1900 students.


Talk to Read© Collaborative is a literacy recovery project in which teachers, instructional coaches, and researchers work together to tailor Talk to Read© strategies for second-grade students attending high-poverty, rural schools where post-pandemic literacy skills have been affected. This professional learning collaborative examines strategies to elicit and scaffold students own background and vocabulary, embed current Missouri Learning Standards, all while utilizing dictation technology and improving classroom management strategies.
