Our goal of closing the literacy achievement gap between underserved children and their more affluent peers remains. The response of Children’s Literacy Initiative’s team in Houston to the COVID-19 crisis is an example of how we continue to transform instruction so that children can become powerful readers, writers and thinkers.
With you we raise a glass and make a virtual toast in support of reading!
