Together We Learn is a curriculum for practitioners whose learners’ goals include, “helping my children become good readers."

The curriculum is easy to skim and full of good ideas. It is not laid out in heavy detail but provides a brief rationale or a little background for a particular lesson focus followed by a good description of a number of activities that would support that learning. The activities are stand-alone pieces which mean practitioners can pick and choose ones that best meet the needs of their learners. Learner worksheets accompany activities that require reading and writing.
