For Educators

Supporting Educators and Engaging Families Through Reading

Prime Time programs are designed to promote literacy, increase family engagement, and provide support to educators as they work to achieve positive reading outcomes for their students. Our programs are rooted in the humanities and focus on open-ended group discussion of ideas for students ages three to 10 years old and their families. Prime Time training programs and resources assist educators in supporting students’ interests in reading, honing communication skills, increasing text comprehension, and developing critical-thinking abilities. These programs provide access to quality, grade level-appropriate literature and use storytelling and discussions to encourage civil discourse, tolerance, and collective learning.
