- Toolkit -

Leaders in other states across the country have taken note of TWMB and have shown interest in replicating the TWMB model. In response, with technical support from OSTP, and in partnership with the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy, TWMB developed an online toolkit to bring this model to scale. The toolkit makes all of TWMB's curricula, training tools, and marketing and promotional assets readily accessible.
