Volunteer research coach for Crown Heights public school literacy program (241sv)

Volunteer with Behind the Book, a non-profit literacy organization that inspires New York City public school students to love reading. Through our innovative programs, accomplished authors lead workshops in high-needs pre-K-12 classrooms, where they guide students in creating their own writing and art projects based on the theme of the author's book.

No experience or training is necessary to volunteer as a writing, research or art coach in the classroom. You'll support, engage, and encourage students as they work on their projects.

This program needs your support as a research coach at an elementary school in Crown Heights. To sign up, contact volunteer{a)behindthebook.org with the program code and date(s). We'll supply the school address, directions, and other information when you're confirmed:


Program 2412SV-W

Date: Wednesday, March 28th
Time: 9:00 – 10:o0 AM

About the workshop: The Museum by Susan Verde inspired second-graders to explore their intuitive responses to art. Research coaches will help small groups of students look through art books to choose one piece that resonates with her/him, and make notes about why. You can also sign up to be a writing coach on Thursday, March 29th from 9:00 – 10:30 AM to help students use their new vocabulary to polish their drafts that describe the artwork they chose and their responses to it. Their work will be published in a book.
