|Part 1: Terri Clark||Part 2: Partners||Part 3: Question & Answer|
We met on February 24, 2015 to learn more about Read On Arizona and its new tool, “Developing A Thriving Reader From the Early Years.” This clear and comprehensive tool can be used to help guide funding opportunities that create a deeper and stronger alignment to Arizona’s critical goals to improve language and literacy outcomes for all children from birth through age eight.
Education funders interested in building capacity around the literacy system, who might use the tool to guide funding decisions or steer potential grantees towards evidence-based practices.
Non-education funders (health, economic development, etc.) interested in understanding how they can support the development of the literacy continuum and what they can do to infuse literacy into their own priorities and strategies.
