Wee Deliver: The In-School Postal Service. An Introductional Guide to the Postal Service's Wee Deliver In-School Literacy Program.
Postal Service, Washington, DC.
Suggesting that schools can provide valuable reading and writing practice for their students through the implementation of a school post office program, this booklet describes the United States Postal Service's "Wee Deliver" program and provides some materials to get the program started. Participants may model their school after a town by naming streets and assigning addresses. Jobs can then be posted and filled through an application and interview process, with students selected based on achievement and attendance, thereby strengthening student motivation to do well. Students will learn real life skills by performing tasks, being on time for work and developing teamwork. Contains 41 references, a sample news release, application, and employment examination, and sample letter formats and certifications. (EF)
