OG workshops offered at public school
As we all have faced difficultites during the pandemic, we look into ways to create collaborations and relationships with organizations and schools that have the same passion for the education in Puerto Rico. For such, we bridged out to create alliances with the vision that this could serve and impact students in the island.
With such in mind we started a series of 6 workshops on literacy, how the brain reads, phonological awareness, and structured approach to reading, among other topics. The teachers received knowledge, practice, and materials for them to put the learning into practice when the students come back to their classrooms in August, 2021.
To continue building those bridges, teachers from other communities with educational disadvantages were also invited and donation of materials and books was made for their tutoring centers.
We also continue to provide services throught our reading clinic, at this time still virtual throughout the intensive summer camp and very hopeful that we could start face to face starting August.
As we embark into new initiatives, we've set the goal of serving and providing more professionals the much needed awareness of structured literacy in Spanish. Our fundraising goal for the next academic year will be with such aim. We know that this will be the way to create a further impact in Puerto Rico.
