State of North Carolina

At the state level, we help strengthen connections to literacy through training and technical assistance.  As with all of our efforts, we build on what we learn through trainings and site visits to improve our existing curricula and meet new needs.

We conduct trainings statewide with a variety of institutions and organizations to meet the needs of their audiences:

Community Colleges

Community in Schools

Early Head Start

Head Start

Libraries

North Carolina Partnership with Children

Public Schools

Smart Start

Title 1

Our trainers instruct teachers in how to use the Motheread curriculum most appropriate to their students’ needs.   Whether its Story Exploring on the coast or My United States in the Triad, we provide not only the curriculum, but the research-based teaching strategies and approaches instructors need to provide effective instruction.   A single training can be limited to one organization or can accommodate individuals from a variety of agencies.

We also offer technical assistance and consulting to community colleges across the state through site visits.  Such visits help programs identify their strengths and needs.  Based on these assessments, we can offer targeted technical assistance and training to help colleges build capacity and strengthen partnerships that move students towards literacy, employment, and self-sufficiency.
