About This Program
(LOL) Literacy Out Loud
TAHIRA enthralls students with her tickle-your-funny-bone tales and delightful sing-along songs in her assembly (LOL) Literacy Out Loud. Delivered in her signature high-energy style, TAHIRA captivates young audiences with stories rooted in the oral tradition of the African Diaspora. The interactive program utilizes stories and songs to teach literacy skills, as students join in the performance through call-in-response and engaging Q&A woven into the fabric of the stories.
