  1. Good luck with your center. I first heard of the Orton Gillingham approach when I was teaching in a literacy center in Michigan. It has really opened up the learning experience for challenged students and teachers alike. Having spent over 30 years teaching a variety of adult learners, I know you are offering a much needed service.

  2. Congratulations on your first year anniversary! Your research based work is incredible. What a wonderful read from this interview. Cheers to Erica and the Tutoring and Literacy Innovation Team!!

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
