The National Partnership for Quality Afterschool Learning developed this instructor’s guide to accompany its Afterschool Training Toolkit, a free online staff development tool. Both the guide and the toolkit materials are designed to give afterschool instructors the resources they need to build fun, innovative, and academically enriching activities that not only engage students, but extend their knowledge in new ways and increase academic achievement.
For afterschool instructors, this guide offers the opportunity to enhance your teaching skills in literacy by seeing read alouds modeled and getting a chance to try them out in your classroom. Site directors and afterschool training coordinators can use this guide in combination with the toolkit to plan staff development in literacy instruction and create tailored training highlighting the best practices most appropriate to your sites. In addition, trainers and coordinators can access professional development train-the-trainer modules at www.nwrel.org/ecc/21century/training.
