The six promising practices in afterschool for literacy identified in the Afterschool Training Toolkit are as follows:
- Book Discussion Groups and Literature Circles
- Read Aloud
- Story and Literature Dramatizations
- Family Literacy Events
- One-on-One and Small Group Tutoring
Each practice is built on youth development principles and research on effective literacy instruction. At their core, Afterschool Training Toolkit materials are designed to illustrate techniques and activities that leverage student curiosity to make literacy in afterschool both enjoyable and relevant. This guide provides professional development ideas for each of these practices.
This is one of four professional development guides for use with the Afterschool Training Toolkit.
