EBLI (Evidence-Based Literacy Instruction) is a revolutionary system of literacy
instruction that provides teachers with the research-based theory, skills, concepts,
and practice to effectively and efficiently teach students how to read, write, and
spell correctly from the onset. The multi-modal and highly engaging lessons
ensure all students are interactively learning in ways that meet their needs.
John Corcoran and Nora Chabazi have partnered together for many years. Nora is the
president and Founder of EBLI, headquartered in Flint, Michigan. www.EBLIreads.com
