Extending and Enhancing Literacy Learning in Afterschool Programs: A Practice Guide

The Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy’s practice guide, Extending and Enhancing Literacy Learning in Afterschool Programs, was developed to help afterschool providers nationwide incorporate literacy skill development into their programs.

The practice guide provides detailed, evidence-based information to help afterschool providers not only understand how literacy skills develop and can best be supported through afterschool programming, but also to help them choose among the myriad of curricula options on the market. The guide’s section on evidence-based curricula evaluates 17 literacy-focused programs to help afterschool providers select the best fit for their programs based on factors including target literacy areas, staffing and training requirements, costs, and results. Development of the practice guide was made possible by a generous grant from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.

The full practice guide is available for download here.
