Campaigns for Early Literacy
Through reviewing existing studies and undertaking new research, the SPELL team, with help and support from many invaluable partners, created a blueprint of promising practices for libraries and other agencies to deliver early literacy information and resources to low-income families with young children.
Campaign for Grade Level Reading
The Campaign is a collaborative effort by foundations, nonprofit partners, business leaders, government agencies, states and communities across the nation to ensure that more children in low-income families succeed in school and graduate prepared for college, a career, and active citizenship. The Campaign focuses on an important predictor of school success and high school graduation—grade-level reading by the end of third grade.
