3-D Literacy is a proven, innovative and valuable literacy development program created by Richard Grunn. It is designed to help teachers work with students who have literacy issues. The program integrates theater games, concepts and technology into a pre-existing literacy curriculum. 

3-D Literacy incorporates the theories of “multiple intelligences” and “brain-based learning” while exploring the elements of literacy, including phonology, spelling patterns, word meaning, grammar and word formation.The exercises and concepts of 3-D Literacy enhance a student’s ability to understand, interpret, create and communicate successfully on the various levels associated with literacy.

The 3-D Literacy process will help teachers give their students multiple opportunities to mentally retrieve new learning by creating an exciting physical and emotional context for the curriculum. The more understanding a student can attach to something learned through engaging different networks of the brain, the greater the likelihood of succeeding in achieving literacy.
