Middle Schools Literacy Initiative (MSLI) and CUNY Literacy Support Team (LST).October 15, 2010
CAT’s MSLI programs in 10 NYC middle schools begin in a few weeks. We are returning to in-class work in eight classrooms and adding two new afterschool sites including Bronx Early College Academy, a CUNY SSO school. The new LST, which CAT is spearheading with participation by the CUNY Institute for Literacy Studies, will assist 10 organizations providing middle school literacy programs to build, improve, and sustain student engagement and literacy skills. MSLI and LST have received generous lead funding from the NYC Department of Youth & Community Development.
