Humanities Institute Sabbatical Project

Justin at Humanities Reception

Last week Justin DeBrosse (right) presented his progress on the Humanities Institute Sabbatical Program at the University of Texas at Austin. Justin’s goal was to develop a plan to answer the question, “What is the effectiveness of the English Forward Curriculum?” In the photo above, Justin is standing with fellow program participants Max Reyneard (left) of The Telling Project and Charlie Lockwood (center) of Texas Folklife.

Justin laid the groundwork for evaluating the curriculum, including developing many of the materials necessary for creating partnerships with other agencies teaching with the curriculum and collecting data. While he didn’t collect or analyze data, the materials he created will work to inform the upcoming program evaluation for the Texas Family Literacy AmeriCorps program starting this fall.
