Lisa Garcia, a ninth-grade English teacher at Adams City High School, has been awarded one of the 2010 National Family Literacy Day Grants from Fresh Perspectives – publishers of materials that help people learn.
Lisa will receive multiple copies of Words of Wisdom: Four Minutes a Day to a Richer and More Powerful Vocabulary – including a copy for each student in her class, and one copy for each of their families.
“This grant award will help me engage students and their families in literacy development,” said Lisa. “It’s crucial to have classroom instruction that is supported by supplemental parent and caregiver participation at home. This literacy program will provide families with tools to support student success.”
