Community Effort Improves Richards Learning Systems

Eric Gordon CMSD video

Eric Gordon, CEO of the Cleveland Schools, supports Richards Learning Systems ®.

Recently, we announced that changes were coming to our award-winning, multi-sensory reading curriculum — Richards Learning Systems®.  With the help of the non-profit Creative Education Institute (CEI), Richards Learning Systems ® will be reformatted into a series of five-minute videos that will teach fundamental reading skills.  These videos will be shown in a classroom setting, allowing teachers to be trained as students learn the material.  This process will save school districts time and money in teacher training, while providing teachers with a proven approach to teach reading.

Eric Gordon, the CEO of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, has already committed 27 K-2 classrooms to the launch of the Richards Learning Systems® video program.

Gordon recently created a short video supporting Richards Learning Systems®.  The video can be viewed on our In the Media page or on Vimeo.

North Coast Education Services proudly offers Richards Learning Systems®.  Developed by our founder and executive director, Carole Richards, Richards Learning Systems® also contains programs in reading comprehension and writing development.  The series is based on the works of Orton-Gillingham.
