Abstract

This presentation is two-fold. First, it will address the importance of incorporating literacy-based extracurricular activities into the regular curriculum. Secondly, it will offer solutions to the obstacles that teachers face when trying to accomplish this. There is evidence that supports the claim that adding EAs to the student learning experience increases student success; however, literacy-based EAs are labor intensive and do not generate the same publicity or revenue as other EAs. If this effort was better supported by an increase in teacher preparation time, and the flexibility to incorporate the subject matter, then more teachers could offer these programs.
