In 2008, Eastern's Center for Early Childhood Education began a three-year effort to improve the early literacy skills of over 500 preschool children in Windham, Connecticut under a U.S. Department of Education Early Reading First grant. Inspiring Lessons is a 30-minute video that shares some of the important lessons learned during the Community Partners for Early Literacy (CPEL) project. The video includes interviews with teachers, paraprofessionals, parents, literacy coaches, and faculty experts Dr. Maureen Ruby and Dr. Ann Anderberg about what works in supporting children's literacy development.
