READ East Harlem/

Hunter College

The driving focus of READ East Harlem/Hunter College is to improve the literacy abilities of K-2 students in East Harlem. To do this, we provide teachers the professional tools and support to engage their diverse students in research‐supported reading comprehension instruction and practice. We seek to support teacher by grounding their work in deepened understanding rather than by being an “add on” to their workload.


The partnership with the superintendent and the principals provide holistic support. READ East Harlem/Hunter College is funded by the New York Community Trust, Brooke Astor Fund. The project currently works with 11 elementary schools in District 4: M007, M038, M050, M057, M072, M083, M096, M102, M108, M146, M171, M182.


“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.”
