FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, NY - April 30, 2012
With the increased expectations of Common Core State Standards and raised bar for standardized tests and graduation requirements, we're all—educators and parents alike—looking for ways to help our children succeed in school. On Wednesday, May 9 at 7:00 Eastern/Pacific, Vocabulary for Success authors Dr. Douglas Fisher and Dr. Nancy Frey will offer suggestions about how to support middle schoolers on The Balancing Act on Lifetime Television.
Dr. Fisher and Dr. Frey work on this challenge every day with middle and high school students in their classrooms at the Health Sciences High and Middle College. They are also Professors of Language and Literacy Education in the school of Teacher Education at San Diego State University.
Joining them on the segment will be Nancy Poliseno, the President of the Association for Middle Level Education (AMLE).
"We see The Balancing Act as a great opportunity for Sadlier - The Vocabulary Company - to share with parents easy, accessible, and fun ways to improve their children's vocabulary. They don't have to be educational experts to boost their children's achievement and help them succeed in school and life," stated William Sadlier Dinger, President of William H. Sadlier, Inc.
The Balancing Act airs weekdays at 7:00 Eastern/Pacific and 6:00 a.m. Central/Mountain on the Lifetime Network.
