Lee y serás Training Sessions

Learn how to use everyday family activities to help children become better learners and readers using stories from the rich Latino cultures and traditions in Lee y serás: Family Album’s FREE two-day training sessions on January 22 and 23, 2008 at Georgia Public Broadcasting. These training sessions are brought to you by GPB Education and the Department of Technical and Adult Education’s Office of Adult Literacy in partnership with Scholastic, the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) and Verizon.

Lee y serás is a national Latino early literacy initiative that empowers and engages families and communities to foster children’s literacy development. By providing research-based, in-culture, and bilingual curricula and materials for families, childcare providers and leaders, the program's goal is to create long-term attitudinal and behavioral change in an effort to help close the education achievement gap.

If you are interested in attending these training sessions, please e-mail Carol Veatch at Seating is limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Future additional training dates may be arranged if we cannot accommodate everyone during this round of training sessions.
