Between the Lions roars into 10th season
| Sep 08, 2010
On the heels of positive research results released in August by the University of Pennsylvania's Annenberg School for Communication, the Emmy Award-winning series Between the Lions roars into its 10th anniversary season with 10 new episodes beginning September 20 on PBS Kids (check local listings for details).
The study indicates that Between the Lions, when combined with teachers who are equipped with curriculum materials and who have received training, has a major impact on preschool literacy skills. For instance, the study indicated that within an experimental group of children exposed to the Between the Lions curriculum, students' letter sound scores, one of the more sophisticated and challenging early literacy skills, improved by nearly 300 percent.
