The documentary provides a historical perspective of an educational breakthrough initiative that challenged conventional wisdom and practice. Rather than relying on motivation to learn to read as a precursor to literacy success, The Reading Factory, comprised of a dedicated team of educators, subscribed to an alternate psycho-educational theory – that learning to read can transcend the motivation often lacking in reluctant readers or students from disadvantaged backgrounds. The Reading Factory has provided long-term evidence that students who achieve success in learning to read go on to experience success in the higher-level skill of reading to learn. The Reading Factory demonstrates that it is possible to change behaviours first, and attitudes and self-belief can follow.
