Pikes Peak Library District, Final Performance Report for Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) Title VI, Library Literacy Program.
Hammond, Susan; Maio, Jean
This final performance report for the Pikes Peak Library District literacy project begins with a section that provides quantitative data. The next section compares actual accomplishments to the project goal and related objectives for 1993: to reduce obstacles to success of students enrolled in the Right To Read program through student participation in the publication of two editions of a magazine, entitled "OUR Magazine." Proposed and actual expenditures are compared. Topics covered in the following four student workshops are described: (1) "Let's Get Started on OUR Magazine"--where ideas come from, networking, keeping a journal, the project timeline, and assembling and publishing the magazine; (2) "How To Write for Publication"--sentence construction, choosing descriptive words, putting thoughts into words, how to edit and re-write, and developing characters; (3) "Putting a Magazine Together"--the layout and design process, how photos and art are incorporated, types of paper, and the printing process; and (4) "OUR Magazine Workshop"--an overview of the process of the first issue with special emphasis on areas that presented problems. The role of the library is discussed, and the impact of the project is considered. The two issues of the magazine are attached. (MES)
