As part of Colorado Literacy Week, on Monday afternoon Lt. Governor Joe Garcia visited a highly successful program at Godsman Elementary School in Denver that promotes not only literacy, but biliteracy in Spanish and English. In partnership with the CU-Boulder’s BUENO Center for Multicultural Education, the school has fully integrated the Literacy Squared® model. As a result, Godsman has achieved impressive reading and writing gains in both Spanish and English that have outpaced the district and the state.
