In 2007, in cooperation with the academy and the government, the BBVA Foundation started a joint work to face the challenge of making every Peruvian student understand what they read. Thus, we created the program “Reading means being ahead”.
The benefits not only affect the students. Teachers also have received the positive impacts of this program. Now they have an efficient methodology that will make a huge difference in future students.
The program has created specific books for each region. Students can identify themselves with the stories they read in the classroom. In that way, a child from Loreto reads stories about the Amazon River, while another child from Arequipa has a book with information about the Misti Volcano.
These three social actors have joined forces in order to reach a common goal through a shared strategy based on consolidated resources and will to collaborate.
Teachers develop conceptual, pedagogic and methodological abilities they will use when teaching comprehensive reading. Throughout this process they are instructed and receive feedback about their performance.
