Building Literacy Rich Environments in Elementary Summer Learning Programs
High-quality out-of-school time (OST) programs can support youth learning and development by providing additional time and opportunities to learn and practice specific literacy skills and strategies.
In this webinar for OST professionals, director of the National Institute on Out-of-School Time (NIOST) Georgia Hall, Ph.D., discusses some crucial findings on building literacy rich environments from the Afterschool Matters Journal. She is joined by Ashley Craig, M.Ed., of Living Strong Consulting, LLC, who shares three elements of foundational literacy engagement summer learning programs can take to infuse literacy into all program activities: structured conversations, the book look, and the read aloud.
