Brief Program Summary: The Summer Literacy with iPads program is designed to prevent the summer slide that is often seen in children that are not involved in literacy activities over the summer. This program is intended to not only prevent children from regressing, but to increase their literacy achievement levels, by immersing the children in a literate environment, teaching them at their level, and stretching them beyond their assessed capabilities using a reading and writing workshop format. Senior interns and first year teachers from the IUPUI School of Education are hired to work with K-3 children enrolled at eight partner organizations (Boys and Girls Club, Christamore House, Concord Neighborhood Center, Edna Martin Christian Center, Hawthorne Community Center, Mary Rigg Neighborhood Center, John Boner Center, and Westminster Neighborhood Ministries).
Success Metrics: Literacy assessments are conducted to monitor academic progress.
