Volunteer as a research coach for Fort Greene public school literacy program — Brooklynian

Volunteer as a research coach for Fort Greene public school literacy program

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 workshop needs your support as a research coach at an elementary school in Fort Greene. To sign up, contact volunteer{a) with the program code. We'll supply the school address, directions, and other information when you're confirmed:

Program 461SM-C

Date: Tuesday, March 27th
Time: 9:00 – 10:30 AM

About the workshop: Pluto Visits Earth!, Steve Metzger‘s playful story about the recently demoted dwarf planet traveling through the solar system to reclaim its status, inspired first-graders to research a planet of their choice. They’ll use what they’ve learned to create a poster highlighting the most interesting facts. Research coaches will work with two students to help them gather the information.
