How might we improve literacy skills for underserved kids in K – 3rd grade?
One Stone continued to prototype and test the Open Book Adventures literacy project, in it’s iteration during the Fall of 2014. This round of OBA focused on reading and writing around the theme, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" We highlighted career choices ranging from firefighters to rockstars—everyone got a chance to explore their future dreams and ambitions through books and encouragement from their One Stone Adventure Guides.
One Stone's Fall 2014 Open Book Adventure literacy program raised reading scores by 34 percent, writing by 28 percent and inspiration by 100 percent.
