    AfterZones: Creating a Citywide System to Support and Sustain High-Quality After-School Programs

    1/23/10 - Laura J. Kotloff

    "Building on a long history of investments in OST learning, The Wallace Foundation launched an out-of-school learning initiative in 2003.

The Foundation granted funds to five cities to support their...

    Engaging older youth: Program and City-Level Strategies to Support Sustained Participation in Out-of-School Time

    1/5/10 - Sarah N. Deschenes, Amy Arbreton, Priscilla M. Little, Carla Herrera, Jean Baldwin Grossman, Heather B. Weiss, Diana Lee

    "It’s not just elementary school children who can benefit from strong after-school and other out-of-school time (OST) programs; middle- and high-school students stand to gain as well. But programs have found it is much tougher to recruit older than younger youth and make sure they participate in OST activities regularly. This study looks at almost 200 programs serving mostly disadvantaged young people in six cities that are building systems of out-of-school time programs. Delving into how...

    Expanded Learning Time by the Numbers

    1/23/10 - Center for American Progress,

    "Expanding learning time, or ELT, in schools is a core strategy on the national education reform agenda as policymakers and educators recognize that the standard school calendar does not fit many students’ needs. Most U.S. students attend school for an average of 6.5 hours a day, for 180 days a year. This is not nearly enough time for many students, particularly those who are English language learners and those who start the school year learning below their grade level."

    1/28/11 - Shanahan, T., Callison, K., Carriere, C., Duke, N. K., Pearson, P. D., Schatschneider, C., &, Torgesen, J.

    The fundamental assumption in this guide is that the objective of reading instruction is to give young readers the tools they need to understand increasingly sophisticated material in all subjects from elementary through later years of school. The practices recommended in this guide are therefore not an end in themselves, but the means to developing sound ability in reading comprehension. With this principle in mind, teachers should prepare their reading lessons in a way that encourages...

    1/20/10 - Stephen Frank

Over the past decade, Education Resource Strategies (ERS) has partnered with urban schools and districts to improve their use of people, time, and money in addressing students’ most pressing needs. Through this work, we have studied many...

    1/28/11 - Müller, Eve

    Virtual education is instruction in a learning environment where the teacher and the student are separated by time, space or both; and the teacher provides course content via course management applications, multimedia resources, Internet, video conferencing or other alternatives to traditional face-to-face education. Terms commonly used to describe particular types of virtual education include ‘distance education,’ ‘online learning’ or ‘e-learning’; and ‘blended,...
