Literacy

The Glasscock School offers literacy programs for students in the form of summer camps and for teachers through a multitude of offerings from single day workshops to yearlong mentoring programs.

For nearly three decades, School Literacy and Culture (SLC) has promoted effective teaching through rigorous professional education initiatives that emphasize early literacy, child development, writing and culture. Our work is based on the following guiding principles:

+ Change requires teachers to become part of a professional learning community that places inquiry at its center.
+ Teachers learn best when they can use their own classroom experience to examine their beliefs and practices.
+ Issues of equity must permeate the fabric of professional development.
+ To accomplish these goals we have multiple programs tiered to meet teachers’, schools’, and districts’ varied needs.

Additionally, we bring that knowledge not only to teachers, but directly to students through Creative Writing Camp held at campuses across the Houston area each summer.
