Dr. Lori Sands (School of Education) received new funding from the United Way of Greater Greensboro for the project “Thriving at Three.”

The Teaching Resources Center (TRC) at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) proposes a partnership with the Moss Street Partnership School (MSPS) in Reidsville, N.C., to provide a series of literacy-based and STEM-focused programs at the partnership school. The project will use the MSPS library and makerspace to engage the Moss Street community with children’s education through programs addressing reading at home, building home libraries and creative making with siblings and parents. The MSPS community will benefit from greater access to local library resources, books for the home and a greater connection to a child’s education in the crucial early years. The TRC, a model school library media center housed in UNCG’s School of Education, will benefit from pre-service teachers and future librarians gaining first-hand experience with program planning, implementation and book selection for elementary students. The proposed project expands a partnership between UNCG and MSPS, which opened in August as a laboratory school under the University’s leadership.
