What's New

SHARP allows students to look not only at themselves, but others.
My students not only improve their reading and writing skills, they also become more confident learners.
While SHARP’s impact is often felt by students who are struggling, it also fits the needs of high achievers.
The SHARP Literacy program not only has the needed content, but also fun ways of approaching these concepts!
I’m indebted to SHARP because not only do you grow my students but you’ve grown me as an educator.
Our students learned so much about their community and have a profound new appreciation for Milwaukee.

Photos from SHARP Literacy's post 4th grade students at Rogers Street Academy worked with partners to learn about the importance of communication and collaboration in coding. Students established a set of symbols that served as a “code” which their partner followed to organize cups in a certain configuration. One student remarked that the most important thing they learned from this exercise was to, “work with other people, even though it’s hard.” We are excited for next week, when students will learn about algorithms and sequences online!
