MOMENTUM K-3 LITERACY PILOT OVERVIEW
Ensuring young learners build strong proficiency with early literacy skills is one of the most vital missions of K-3 education. Reading, writing, listening and speaking are all critical abilities for our future citizens and require a strong foundation. The MoMEntum K-3 Literacy Pilot is a Maine Department of Education project designed to improve the literacy achievement of students in kindergarten through grade three in schools in which the pilot is being conducted. Teachers in the pilot schools will be engaged in ongoing professional learning, delivered by trained literacy and technology integration specialists, to strengthen literacy instruction, including the use of iPad technology provided by Apple, Inc.
