Friday Round-Up, September 6: Twelve New Tell Our Story Submissions

Monday, September 9, 2013

Colleagues,
This week's round-up of what is happening on the Ning features new Tell Our Story submissions, funding opportunities, communications tools, successful summer literacy program models, news articles from Pittsburgh and Orlando, and research on chronic absenteeism. Click through to read more:
  • For those looking to communicate the importance of early childhood education using the latest neuroscience research, here's a toolkit from ReadyNation and the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University. These tools include a heavily annotated PowerPoint presentation, videos, and briefs, along with recordings and talking points.
  • The National Summer Learning Association highlights two models of summer literacy program success: Freedom School Partners, which engages 1,200 youth in deep book-based discussions, and Fresno County Office of Education Central Enrichment Summer Adventures, a middle school summer learning program with a book-based theme.

Warmly, Susanne
