Literacy

These trainings are intended for after-school staff responsible for overseeing literacy development in OST programs. These sessions serve to strengthen after-school and summer program activities by building awareness and background on critical literacy issues. They also provide OST staff with practical and useful methods for observing, assessing and addressing literacy needs in their programs.

ExpandED Schools offers two types of literacy trainings for staff members in OST sites: single-session Literacy Workshops or multi-session programs.  

These workshops are made possible by funding from DYCD, and are available at no cost to the CBOs with which DYCD contracts. These workshops may be filmed for training purposes.


Check back for Summer/ Fall Sessions soon!

Building a Culture of Literacy in Your Summer Program (K-8)

Maintaining literacy skills over the summer is critically important as research shows that students can lose between one and three months of reading skills during these months. Luckily it can also be incredibly fun! From creative writing to read-alouds to nature walks, field trips, and local library programs, attend this workshop to learn about high-impact strategies and no-cost/low-cost resources for building a culture of literacy in your summer program.

These trainings are intended for after-school program staff members—from front line workers to supervisors of multiple OST programs—who want to implement STEM (science, technology, engineering, or math) learning opportunities in their programs. 

ExpandED Schools offers STEM trainings for staff members in OST sites.

These trainings are made possible by funding from DYCD, and are available at no cost to the CBOs with which DYCD contracts.
