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 We love the Explore Milwaukee summer program! Not only because it hits close to home for so many, but it also allows students to become familiar with their community.


This program offers these children a neighborhood tour. This tour will build on learning and concepts explored in the text Explore Milwaukee: Your Neighborhood, Our City and is customized for each school. The students will be engaged with informational/interactive activities during the walking tour!

Children from COA Youth & Family Centers loved getting out of the classroom and exploring their community!
