One of the things we love most about the Y4Y portal is how it’s always growing and expanding to adapt to users’ needs. Every single month there are new blog articles to read, new webinar recordings to watch, and new Discussion Board posts that you can peruse and share with your colleagues. It’s a “virtually” (get it?) never-ending stream of information about 21st CCLC programs!
While it’s true that new materials are posted every month, what’s even better is that periodically we get to add major new sections of content that dramatically expand the scope of the Y4Y portal. Most recently it was the new Drug and Alcohol Prevention resources, and before that it was the new Civic Learning and Engagement materials in the Project-Based Learning module.
Now we’re very excited to announce that in fall 2014 we’ll be launching a brand new content module devoted entirely to Literacy. It will have the same look and feel of existing modules. There will be a complete Introduction to Literacy featuring dynamic videos and interactive features, Implementation Strategies to help you put the ideas into practice in your program, and helpful information about Coaching Your Staff in your particular Literacy efforts. Of course, there will also be Trainings to Go, Training Starters, and dozens of new Tools – all fully customizable to your program’s needs!
The new Literacy module will cover the Five Components of Reading, the Six Developmental Stages of Reading, and many other literacy-related topics like writing and comprehension that impact not only youth but also their families as they learn and grow in today’s competitive world and global economy.
Watch your in-box for more details and a special announcement regarding the release of the new Literacy Module on Y4Y!
