The Ready To Learn Partnership

The Ready To Learn Partnership (RTLP) is a consortium of children's media creators, early childhood educators, communications professionals, evaluators and a public television affiliate that was awarded a Ready To Learn Cooperative Agreement in 2005 by the U.S. Department of Education. Funded activities are focused on creating and researching media-based interventions to engender young children's early literacy acquisition, with an emphasis on children living in families at the lowest income levels. The WordWorld television series, the first of four properties being produced by the RTLP, was created to meet these objectives.
