"Every child has the right to read—and must read—in order to make sense of their world and to thrive in it," said Greg Worrell, President of the Scholastic Classroom and Community Group (SCCG). "Books and reading should be a part of every childʼs life, in their classrooms and homes with their teachers and families—from the day they are born and for the rest of their lives."
In the classroom, after school, in the community and at home, SCCG reinforces learning everywhere a child meets a caring adult. Our mission is to provide young people with access to text that is relevant and engaging, while supporting content area learning and information literacy that insures the highest levels of student achievement. Along with classroom books and instructional materials to meet studentsʼ needs, SCCG provides workshops, extensive teaching resources, and works with communities and long-standing literacy partners to ensure that students receive learning support 24/7 and from birth to adulthood.
For classrooms, that means helping to identify critical resource gaps, and providing options that build classroom libraries to drive meaningful independent reading practice or for guided and leveled reading to differentiate instruction.
Because learning and literacy outside of school must complement the learning that happens in school classrooms, SCCG's "Family and Community Engagement" (FACE) team partners with schools and community organizations to extend literacy and learning into homes, into the summer and into the community through mentoring programs like Scholastic R.E.A.L. In addition, we work with community-based organizations like Reading Is Fundamental and Reach Out & Read to provide children and their families with best-selling, high-interest books they can cherish and enjoy at home.
