The Transforming Literacy Project Kicks Off the New School Year
On August 28, Conservatory Lab hosted 11 partner educators from Boston Public Schools in a meeting held by the Transforming Literacy Project (TLP). TLP, a Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education funded grant, has been working to share Conservatory Lab’s successful early literacy practices and curriculum with select Boston Public Schools. The August workshop was designed to help teachers map out English Language Arts curriculum, with a focus on launching Independent Reading in the early fall and case studies in the late fall. Participants included 4 second grade teachers, 6 first grade teachers, 2 Kindergarten teachers, and 1 principal from the Kenny and Shaw Schools.
