About this Grantee

To address difficulties that interfere with academic and social success, Ms. Fongers and her partners implement a program for students to use technology to write, read, and publish solution-focused personal narratives. Students develop critical thinking and writing skills by brainstorming and writing about solutions to the problems interfering with their learning. To increase student confidence and parental involvement, students read their completed stories at a reception for family, students, and staff, and present an autographed copy of their story to the school library for future student use.
