Readers needed for online writing grant

The state grant for online writing for high school students is due October 17, 2007. Since this is a state grant, all LEAs may apply.

We need readers. Even if you have never read grants before we would welcome you as a reader.

Each reader will receive a packet with about six grants along with scoring rubrics. Readers will have two weeks to read and score. On November 15th., readers will come together @ ACES. Readers will be divided into groups...each group will be made up of 4-6 people who have read the same grants. Reader groups will discuss each of the grants that they read and a summative evalution form/score sheet will be completed. The scores on these forms determine who the grantees are.

If you are interested, please call Karen Kaplan (860) 713-6781 or send her an e-mail (
