Students' Literacy Blossoms at Summer Learning Labs
Literacy learning labs, held this summer in 21 rural schools in five states, gave students a safe space to read and write and gave teachers a chance to collaborate and try new strategies. Funding these labs is a Literacy Innovation in Rural Education through Collaboration (LIREC) grant, a two-year, $4.6-million grant between NCTE and two partners, Rural School & Community Trust and the Institute for Educational Leadership.  The Council Chronicle, September 2015
