Schools Accept Light Up Literacy Challenge


by Ronnie Zamora/LFCISD

Nine Los Fresnos campuses have accepted the Light Up Literacy Challenge as part of a TED-Ed innovative project.

TED-Ed is free global educational platform with lessons for any teacher or student.

The teachers on this campus are committed to doing daily literacy activities that spark reading and writing regardless of grade level or content area. Administrators are supporting this initiative and providing daily incentives to teachers who participate and show evidence through social media or email.

This initiative evolved the TED-Ed Innovative project by Science Strategist Alejandra Guzman. Last year two campuses piloted the program and this year that number has increased exponentially.

Schools participating include Lopez-Riggins Elementary, Los Fresnos Elementary and Dora Romero Elementary, Liberty Memorial, Los Cuates and Resaca middle schools, Los Fresnos High, Los Fresnos United, and the Disciplinary Alternative Education Program.

“We even have educators from other school districts such as Harlingen, McAllen and Port Isabel that have taken on the challenge,” Guzman said.
