Penn Reading Initiative

Penn Reading Initiative (PRI) is a Penn student-run tutoring program that was developed through an ABCS course taught by Bill Labov, Professor of Linguistics, and the Penn Linguistics Laboratory.  PRI tutors use The Reading Road, a curriculum that includes lessons, stories, and games designed to engage the interest of struggling readers in urban elementary schools.
