Welcome to the Center for Inquiry of Transformative Literacies


 

Improving literacy since 1999! 

These very professional educators have a wonderful manner of teaching young students in this extremely worthy program. 


The UTSA staff and tutors have sparked Nina's hunger for learning and created a real interest in reading and sharing her stories. 


Noeh attended the second tutoring session and we have read a massive number of books this summer. He is reading so well and is more excited about reading than ever before; largely due to the UTSA tutoring.



Services we offer

Professional Development Workshops: Through our research and work with schools across the City, region, and around the world, we have developed professional development workshops for teachers, intended to support them in improving their instruction. Our own research informs the work we do with teachers and campus literacy leaders in these workshops and is grounded in support for the State standards. You can select from the wide variety of workshops we offer or request one unique to meet your campus needs. Our Summer Invitational Workshops and Open Institutions are some of the most celebrated professional development opportunities in the City! Let us serve the needs of your writing teachers!

 



Outreach Services: Tutoring Services at La Plaza de Lectura: We offer tutoring services for students, meeting their instructional needs in a safe and supportive environment. Summer Literacy Camps: We offer opportunities in the summer for young readers and writers to explore language and literacy experiences with each other and highly qualified literacy teachers.


Research Partnerships: Our research partnerships with local school districts are grounded in a shared vision to improve literacy instruction. As a result, we engage in "design research" partnerships; our partnerships are "place-based" and focused on informing both practice and research. Our studies are co-designed and collaborative at every step in the process.



School-Level Support: Classroom-Based Coaching Support; Recent research has indicated that professional development workshops by themselves may not be enough for teachers to change their practices. Teachers need classroom based literacy coaches to help them implement their new knowledge and practices. If your school/campus does not have literacy leaders to support your teachers, talk to us about UTSA literacy coaches and the work we can do to support your teachers in their classrooms as they learn to improve their practices. Our coaches are highly qualified literacy specialists (Reading Specialists and Teacher Consultants with the San Antonio Writing Project) who have years of experience leading literacy reform efforts.
