New Life Trails partnered with NOATF to do a two week camp in August to get 3rd graders ready for a new school year. Deborah Spears and Ginger Henley have 46 years of teaching experience and decided to write a curriculum specifically for tutoring to maximize learning during a two week time period. They opted to use a pre and post test to evaluate the results. They found a 35% increase in curriculum retention with the new material. Based upon the results they made the decision to publish the material to be used in an afterschool, in-school, home, and tutoring program.
