The Reading League Wisconsin

We became the first state chapter of The Reading League in October, 2019, organized by Wisconsin educators and advocates for the science of reading. Our mission is to increase the awareness, understanding, and use of evidence-aligned reading instruction in Wisconsin. We believe all children deserve to learn to read and all educators can learn to teach them.
