About Us

An Award Winning Team

Small Business Innovation Research Grant

The Hollywood GrooveTM team began work in 2005 under a research grant from the U.S. Department of Education.

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Grant led to an invitation to the Innovation Program at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, in 2011.

Hollywood GrooveTM is a team of education, psychology, and IT specialists dedicated to providing research-based collaborative literary games with a humorous tone.

Our Goal

Our work is founded on the principles of reading motivation.   Our games are an exploration into literary concepts such as character, plot, and setting.   We provide practice in visualizing, brainstorming, and making connections between concepts.

Our games are not designed for scoring points.  Rather, we encourage imaginative play that may stimulate creative thinking.  We encourage a supportive environment filled with laughter.

We strive to aid families, teachers, and groups who seek a variety of language arts activities.
