CTL's Sylvia Thompson and Patrick Kennedy awarded USAID grant.

Congratulations to CTL's Sylvia Thompson and Patrick Kennedy for receipt of a new grant from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to support the successful implementation of the Reading for Success - National Program for Reading Project in Morocco.

The objective of this 5-year grant is to expand USAID/Morocco’s efforts to support the Moroccan Ministry of Education in improving reading and writing outcomes for children in grades 1-4. The project activities will be carried out in partnership with the Moroccan Ministry of Education to build their capacity to (a) develop and disseminate effective, evidence-based Arabic language curriculum and instructional materials; (b) design and deliver professional development programs to education personnel to improve teaching skills; and (c) develop, administer, and disseminate results of early reading assessments, to better monitor student progress.

Congratulations Sylvia and Patrick!
