LINK TO SIGN UP: OVERVIEW: What: An Invitation to Read Aloud with Read Lead Scholars When: Any day that fits your schedule. Dates: Monday-Friday (June 19 - July 26, 2018) Time: 8:15 - 9:00am DESCRIPTION: You have an incredible opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of PBSD scholars by participating as a guest reader at the Children’s Defense Fund's (CDF) Freedom Schools program held in the Pine Bluff School District (PBSD). We cordially invite you to serve as a distinguished Read Aloud guest on the date of your choice; June 19 -July 26 at 8:15 AM. Freedom Schools, founded by Dr. Marian Wright Edelman, closes achievement gaps and prevents summer learning loss. Freedom Schools focus on improving literacy and self-esteem through a curriculum that engages children and their families.

The Pine Bluff School District is an official site sponsor of the national CDF's Freedom Schools program. The program provides an exciting Integrated Reading Curriculum, taught by CDF trained local college students, is developmentally appropriate and culturally relevant to area youth. Daily, scholars receive two healthy meals and a snack. Scholars are also taught nonviolent conflict resolution with critical thinking skills, and are required to engage in community service and social action projects. Read Aloud guests are invited to come and read to our scholars. The guest reader is introduced to the scholars and information about the person’s role in the community is shared. The read-aloud time exposes the students to the site library and to the favorite books of the guest reader.

It also allows people from the community to visit and see what the CDF Freedom Schools program is all about and demonstrates to scholars that reading is important to everyone. Our scholars would love to have you as one of their Read Aloud guest. We appreciate your time and consideration.
