The partnership will expand WriteSteps’ reach across classrooms on a global scale and support its mission to empower K-5 teachers with writing and grammar lessons that provide children with the essential skills they need for a lifetime of confident writing.
“When WriteSteps launched nationally in September of 2011 I never dreamed that two years later it would expand to an international level,” said Suzanne Klein, WriteSteps Founder and CEO. “My main goal for creating WriteSteps was to make a difference in as many classrooms as I could in order to help students become successful writers. I am honored to connect with schools across 16 countries and to see teachers around the world using WriteSteps in their classrooms.”
Under the terms of the new agreement, the partnership between WriteSteps and AIE will allow WriteSteps to expand outside of the United States and reach schools in Australia, Singapore, China, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan, Indian Subcontinent, UAE, Kuwait, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, and Israel.
“We are excited in our new product partnership with WriteSteps,” said Viral Parekh, Program Director. “Developing writing skills is becoming an increasingly critical part of education’s role in preparing students for today’s communication based environment. The American Institute of Enrichment’s mission to enrich student’s education through concept based education is strongly supported with the WriteSteps writing program and its fundamental approach in developing skills through the elementary years. The potential of this partnership is limitless as we collaborate and impart concept based education at more schools in more regions in the years to come.”
