"Today, our students are doing very well with our well-balanced literacy instruction that includes guided reading, meaningful vocabulary instruction, literacy work stations, and reading and writing workshop. Our teachers’ reading blocks run very smoothly and we all speak a “common language”, which translates into success for our students. I highly recommend Dr. Kunz for any literacy endeavors you may be pursuing."
D.P. , Principal
"Dr. Kunz's coaching style is energizing as well as chock full of "ready-to-use" literacy activities. Teachers feel equipped to enter their classrooms the next day with a variety of strategies and approaches.
Dr. Kunz delivers literacy coaching with humor as well as research-based best practices that teachers value and implement.
Teachers in my district believe that Dr. Kunz's session was one of the most useful and engaging PD experiences they have had in a long time!"
J.M., Reading Specialist/Coach
"Ken is amazing! Having worked with Ken and his colleagues for a number of years, I can say that literacy teaching and learning is their passion, and they really know and understand best practice! Ken is well-versed in evaluating a school or district's literacy needs and thinks outside of the box when it comes to literacy intervention and meeting the needs of all students. His in-class demonstrations are valuable, as are the lasting connections that he makes with teachers."

Who We Are
Committed to Excellence in Literacy Instruction
When I first created For the Love of Literacy, I imagined a home for connecting literacy research and theory with best practices for teachers, reading coaches/specialists, and literacy leaders. This site provides a common place for my blog, literacy resources, links to professional literacy organizations, and opportunities to connect. Check out some of our services below. We'd love to hear from you!
