Dear Friend,

With your support, our programs were used in over 4,000 schools, we trained 2,777 educators, and we impacted the lives of over 83,000 children last year. But there is still much more work to do. Many schools struggle to incorporate strategies that have a student-centered approach and build life skills among young people. With Great Books programs, learning through collaboration is paramount . . . like it is in Tesha’s classroom.

Tesha is an ELA teacher at LEARN 6 North Chicago who has been using Great Books for more than two years. For her, the results are crystal clear. “Since implementing the Great Books program in my classroom, my scholars have grown stronger not only academically but civically as individuals as well,” Tesha said. “Each year, they learn to answer a question, glean the knowledge from the answers they hear from others, then find or create new questions from those answers—and they love it! Great Books has helped to turn my classroom into a community of learners who are conscious of the world around them and eager for more. ELA is now EL-yay!”

Help us provide teachers like Tesha with the tools they need to get their students college- and career-ready. Together We Can build a community of lifelong learners.

From now through the end of December, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $30,000, by our generous Board of Directors. Double your impact and give many more classrooms like Tesha’s the gift of better education.
