Event Details


TCB is offering two more sections of the PROJECT READ Program - Story Form and Phonics. The steps for signing up and ordering materials are near the bottom of this page.


Language Circle Enterprises presents the Project Read curriculum, a complete research-based language arts program which includes instructional materials for phonics, reading comprehension, and writing. This time-tested curriculum was developed in 1973 by Dr. Mary Lee Enfield and Victoria Greene. The curriculum honors diverse learning profiles and provides lessons built on direct concept teaching, targeted multisensory strategies, and higher-level thinking skills. Project Read curriculum has been proven by performance for over 45 years. This curriculum is implemented with K-12 classrooms, ESL students, Special Education, Title One programs, and adolescents or adults with reading and writing problems.

Language Circle Enterprises' focus is to support not only students, but educators. The Project Read curriculum empowers teachers by arming them with instructional strategies and targeted multisensory techniques that address diverse learning needs. One of the advantages of this online program is that the office staff will be available to answer any of your questions at any time.  If it's not during their office hours, just leave a message and they'll get back to you. Phone 800-450-0343.

TCB is now offering two more sections of the Project Read series: one is Phonics and the other is from Reading Comprehension - Story Form.  You may purchase and take both sections or either one.

Each session's instructional strategies include:

  1. Giving students the "why" before teaching the skills so they have an understanding and personal investment in learning
  2. Graphic symbols and body language that put the focus on learning rather than memorizing
  3. Stimulating multiple areas of the mind with visual, auditory, and tactile exercises to seed ideas

July class - PHONICS

1. The webinar will be streamed to you and you may access it anytime  between the stated dates

2. The registration deadline is July 16th for Sentence Structure and July 31 for Report Form Process - be sure to pay attention to these dates.

3.  Be sure to order your materials before the start of class. 

4.  By the scheduled start date, Language Circle Enterprises will email the webinar link to you. The webinar link remains active for two weeks from the start date, either July 31st or August 15th. 

5. If you really want to take the class but the exact dates won't work for you, please call Language Circle Enterprises to see if you may make a slight change to the dates.   Eventually, we will be offering these classes again, but it could be a while because we want to cycle through the other classes first.          

6.  After webinar expiration date, Language Circle Enterprises emails certificates and course evaluations to webinar participants. These certificates are valid for IDA CEUs. Participants should consult their professional organization to determine their requirements for CEUs.

We hope that you will enjoy this training opportunity as so many others have. We decided to set up this online version because of the many difficulties in establishing a date and location for in-person instruction.

We are working with University of California Riverside to obtain a unit of credit for those who take both classes and we're waiting for the course number.
