Reading Partners Orientation – Harry Jaffe and Naomi Shachter
DC Literacy Program to Host Introductory Session
Thursday, April 6, 2017 (Lunch)
TIME: 12:00—1:30 PM
EVENT TYPE: Workshop
Reading Partners, a DC-based literacy program in 20 schools, will conduct an introductory session for WNDC members and guests interested in learning in how to raise achievement levels in DC through a well-structured reading program. Reading Partners is changing life trajectories for 975 students in our area by building skills with a proven, data-driven curriculum that has demonstrated results nationwide.
At this informal “working” lunch, you will learn about their important work and how to get involved from Community Engagement Director Naomi Shachter and Board Member Harry Jaffe. They will share a short video of the program as well as sample curriculum packets. Two WNDC members, Gretchen Bloom and Anna Fierst, will share their personal stories as enthusiastic tutors with Reading Partners.
Reading Partners is looking for a few more tutors to make sure that every DC school child gets the help he or she needs.
PRICE: $15 for Members & Non-members for sandwich/salad lunch. No cost for information session only.
