OETA Accepting Applications for Ready to Learn Program
OETA is accepting applications for its Ready to Learn program. Ready to Learn is a community engagement and outreach program designed to support the education of Oklahoma’s early learners. The Ready to Learn program empowers teachers and caregivers with tools and training while maximizing every opportunity for learning in traditional and non-traditional learning environments and leverages OETA’s world-class children’s television programming like Curious George, SuperWhy and Wordgirl.
The Ready to Learn program offers parent workshops designed to help empower parents to support their child’s education by maximizing every out-of-class learning opportunity. Student workshops encourage storybook reading and help build literacy and STEM skills along with opportunities to continue learning at home through PBS apps and PBS LearningMedia. Participants families have the opportunity to receive tools and resources to support learning at home. Ready to Learn's community-based learning events take learning traditional concepts like literacy and STEM into non-traditional environments with activities led by certified teachers and supported by parents to help strengthen the parent-teacher partnership.
Ready to Learn is open to children in prekindergarten through third grade or ages 4 to 9 (child must have turned four years old by September 1, 2016 and will not turn 10 years old before June 30, 2017). Students enrolled in public, charter or homeschool are eligible. To learn more or to signup, please visit http://www.oeta.tv/education/ready-to-learn/.
