Now it’s time to use them! Here you will find free lessons and courses to get you going on the right track. Each features evidence-based resources and tools. Some were developed by FCRR. Others were developed by our friends and colleagues. We just want you to use them! We provide links and information to direct you to the original source of the material. That way, you can find even more free resources that have been developed just for you! We will continue to develop more lessons and courses, so please come back and visit us often.

Training for Promising Literacy Practices in K-5 Out-of-School-Time Programs

Training for Promising Literacy Practices in K-5 Out-of-School-Time Programs

Florida Grade-Level Reading Campaign (FGLRC), an initiative of Florida Alliance of Children’s Council & Trusts (FACCT), offers an engaging in person training based on FGLRC’s ‘Promising Literacy Practices in K-5 OST Programs’, a document designed for K-5 OST staff and directors. 

Training participants will be guided through 21 literacy practices aligned to the 7 categories of the Florida Standards for Quality Afterschool Programs. They will partake in small group discussion and activities that support these literacy practices, and will be familiarized with supporting literacy research documents and resources.
