IMPACT Project

The Instructional Model Program for All Children and Teachers: Early Language and Literacy Excellence is a partnership between UIC and five Archdiocese of Chicago schools: Pope John Paul II School, St. Ethelreda School, St. Hyacinth School, St. Dorothy School, and St. Pius V School. It began in the fall of 2009 and will continue through the 2012-2013 school year.

During this fourth year of IMPACT, teachers are not only implementing all faces of the Opening the World of Learning curriculum, they are also adapting instructional activities to suit the differential needs of their students and planning their own comprehensive units on topics like “From Farm to Table”, “Celebrations” and “Recreation and Leisure”. IMPACT students continue to demonstrate strong growth in early language and literacy skills and are experiencing the joy and power of early reading and writing.
