Welcome to Foundations & Frameworks!
Foundations & Frameworks is a uniquely designed research-based and research-supported instructional reading program developed at Briarwood Christian School in Birmingham, Alabama. Since its introduction in 2001, an increasing number of schools have adopted and implemented the program and are witnessing student achievement gains in vocabulary, reading comprehension, critical thinking and written expression. There are over 135 public and private schools that use the program expanding to Canada, Kazakhstan, Lebanon and Uganda. Research has repeatedly confirmed that the most significant factor in a student’s academic achievement is the classroom teacher.
Critical thinking leads to deeper understanding and transfers to greater retention.
