Researchers developed a design and implementation of three interventions tested in Project Upgrade, an experiment conducted as part of the Evaluation of Child Care Subsidy Strategies.
Within six months of training, all three language/literacy interventions resulted in significant changes in teacher behaviors that supported their student's language and literacy development. The number of classroom activities that involved literacy, increased significantly and more literacy resources were made available in the classroom.
