Thank you to those who attended our breakout session at the Community Literacy Summit in Grand Rapids yesterday. As promised, I have created access to the PowerPoint so you can have the data slides that peaked your particular interest. Much of the information was put together by our wonderful Director of Curriculum & Instruction, Heidi Turchan, so I do ask that if you are sharing it with others, please give her credit. If you would like to bring an Engage Their Brains! workshop to your community, please contact Amy Barto (firstname.lastname@example.org) in Northern West Michigan or Heidi Turchan (email@example.com) in Southern West Michigan.

Additional thank you’s go to Lindsay McHolme, Kristin Brace and the Community Literacy Initiative Council for their marvelous work at developing a truly collaborative conference. Kids need their communities and, more importantly, they need those communities working together. Collaborative leadership is vital if we are to build sustainable communities; communities who are capable of using their technology and resources to develop solid leaders like Anneshia Freeman.
