Program 1

Turning the Page's three interconnected initiatives - Families Learning Together, School and Classroom Resources, and School Community Leadership - enable valuable educational resources to reach students via the most important educators in their lives: their parents and teachers. Families Learning Together empowers families to become better educators of their children at home and advocates for their children in school. TTP holds educational workshops for parents, child mentoring and book distributions during Community Nights held at our partner DCPS schools. During many Community Nights local children's authors share their books and experiences with families while local museums also welcome families for educational afternoons and evenings. TTP partners with community institutions to bring high-quality, standards-based educational resources to teachers through our School and Classroom Resources initiative. TTP sponsors professional development workshops in conjunction with The Phillips Collection and the National Air and Space Museum, and offers an innovative workshop on the Literacy Through Photography methodology. TTP provides teachers with all the necessary resources to implement these programs in their classrooms. TTP helps ensure that our programs can have the greatest possible impact by encouraging active teachers and parents to invest their time in our School Community Leadership initiative, through which they learn new leadership skills and share strategies to increase family involvement and bring more resources to their school community.
