Project Read

Southern Wesleyan University administers the state-funded Project Read grant. This grant's purpose is to provide language arts staff development to K-5 South Carolina public school teachers using the Language Circle Project Read curriculum.

Project Read consists of four curriculum strands: phonics, linguistics, reading comprehension, and written expression.

Language Circle Project Read is a complete language arts program designed to respect alternative learning profiles. Research-based and student-tested, Project Read has been proven to cultivate knowledge, promote academic independence, and foster personal integrity.

Language Circle Enterprises exists to ensure that every child, no matter their circumstance or ability, has the opportunity to understand, embrace, and enjoy the many components of the written and spoken word.
