Afterschool Curriculum Choice: Literacy Resources
is an initiative of PEAR, the Program in Education,
Afterschool and Resiliency at Harvard University and the SEDL National Center for Quality Afterschool.
This database was conceived, compiled and coordinated by a team at
PEAR in collaboration with SEDL. PEAR's team consisted of Gil Noam,
Sarah Schwartz, Kristin Sinclair, Erin Cooney, Larina Mehta, and Sara
Hoots. SEDL's team consisted of Cathy Jordan, Deborah Donnelly, and
It is designed to help practitioners locate and make informed choices about high-quality literacy resources to
enrich their programs. Resources were selected based on proven use in afterschool settings, and
include challenging lesson plans and organized activities.
