Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Teaching is based in the belief that every student brings all of the strengths necessary to succeed academically upon school entry. However, most educators (and the public) still view students who live in poverty and/or are Standard English Learners (who speak varieties of English that differ significantly from Academic Classroom English) through a deeply ingrained deficit perspective.

Ventris Learning’s innovative language development-based supplemental resources help educators more effectively meet the needs of these students who are so often underserved in literacy instruction.
