Last month the Y4Y team had the opportunity to collaborate with 21st CCLC grantees from Maryland around promising practices for aligning programming with school day learning. Grantees brainstormed and shared their ideas for creatively embedding learning standards in their activities. Programs that already had an academic focus found strategies for boosting the development of 21st Century skills, including one STEM-focused program that turned students' love of talking into a public speaking exercise on the topic of college and career readiness.
Thanks to all of the programs that shared their ideas with us, and we encourage you to keep sharing with the Y4Y user community in the Discussion Boards!
