SRSD integrates all major learning theories into a practical set of strategies that enable teachers to see growth in both literacy 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.
