"Does a nice job of explaining the need for afterschool programs and how to work with schools and school personnel to make such programs successful. The book is very practical and useful and the authors offer great ideas and strategies to help readers get moving and take action."
Darin S. Drill, Principal
Cascade High School, Turner, OR
"Lots of great nuts-and-bolts suggestions, helpful references, and suggestions on resources."
Joseph Cronin, President
"There is a good balance of content across the curriculum. Students who participated in these programs clearly learned a great deal and would be able to transfer these skills to the classroom. The coverage is solid and very detailed."
Jane Kerschner, Director of School Programs and Development
The Ophelia Project®
"As a director of an afterschool program, I found the unique aspects of these programs to be useful. The contributors tackle the issue of the place of afterschool programs in raising student achievement and warn that it is unwise to solely create another layer of school. Afterschool programs also have to have an element of FUN."
Paul Young, Executive Director
West After School Center, Inc.
"The descriptions in this book exemplify good teaching such as might occur anywhere—not just afterschool. We are presented with sound educational endeavors that respond sensitively and inventively to children’s interests, needs, and predilections, but extend their knowledge, skills, and understanding into new domains."
From the Foreword by Glynda A. Hull
"Discusses how to develop creative youth programs and is a 'must' in a learning environment where afterschool enrichment possibilities have blossomed."
California Bookwatch, December 2007
Midwest Book Review
An interesting book which looks at after school activities as a way of supporting young people's learning.
