About this Grantee
Ms. Jesup, Ms. Gokey, and Ms. MacDonald develop “Literacy Links” to enhance the art, technology, and literacy skills of high school students. With the assistance of a children’s author, students learn about writing and illustrating children’s books. A reading specialist helps students develop methods to modify text to accommodate different reading levels. After meeting the children in a local kindergarten and a preschool exceptional education program, the high school students write, illustrate, and bind a book targeted to each child’s interests and needs.
