Learning to read in Sierra Leone

Jo Kuyvenhoven in Sierra Leone

You are invited and encouraged to attend a sabbatical presentation by Professor Jo Kuyvenhoven, Thursday, March 28th, 3:30-5:00 p.m. in the Meeter Center Lecture Hall.

Political, economic, and social factors support and distract from the development of circumstances in which children will learn to read. Jo will describe those circumstances and discuss her own work with Sierra Leonean colleagues and other members of the international "community" working to support children in real classrooms across Sierra Leone.

Refreshments will be served - we hope you can join us.
