American Literacy Council

A note from the
American Literacy Council President

American Literacy CouncilFor more than 150 years the American Literacy Council (ALC) has issued scholarly research, publications and innovative strategies, to help counter the dismal literacy statistics found in most English-speaking countries. Our goal is to share with you tools, concepts, and action plans that support this effort.

We have collected and posted, on this site, a variety of related materials: scholarly articles, practical "how-to" case studies, recordings, videos, conceptual debates, sources for software packages, links to classroom materials, lists of funding sources, professional organizations, statistical studies, and examples of innovative initiatives.

I can be reached at the Boulder Colorado Literacy Research Center by calling (303) 440-7385 or emailing

Warm Regards,

Robert Alan Mole, President
American Literacy Council
