School-based Project: Summer SOAR

Early literacy interventions for young children at risk for school failure due to low socio-economic status, developmental delay, or English language learner status have been most effective when instruction is provided by knowledgeable teachers, in collaboration with the familial environment, and the community.  The researcher proposes to address the needs of young learners by implementing a system wide approach to early literacy in an inclusive preschool environment by a) providing a comprehensive language and literacy based program to children ages 3-5 who are at risk of educational failure, b) providing ongoing teacher professional development and mentoring opportunities, c) implementing a kindergarten transition component, and d) coordinating parent and community based participation.
