SRSD integrates all major learning theories into a practical set of strategies and deliberate skill practice activities within an overarching unifying framework that enable teachers to see growth in both literacy outcomes, and student independence. SRSD foregrounds writing & reading with deep attention to purpose, task, audience and social context. Developed by Dr. Karen Harris & colleagues, SRSD is fueled by 35 years of research and innovation.


thinkSRSD’s passion is bringing SRSD to schools through blended learning. We serve schools across the nation and world through our unique eLearning modules and live web calls.
