$60,000 GRANT TO AID 4TH-GRADERS

A $60,000 grant will allow the Lake Shore Central School District, the Seneca Nation of Indians and the University at Buffalo Graduate School of Education to help 75 fourth-grade pupils use storytelling and computer technology to improve their reading comprehension.

The grant is one of 10 awarded by Apple Computer from among 4,000 applications. The Lake Shore students -- including 25 children from the Seneca Nation -- will take part in writing projects based on stories from their cultural backgrounds.

Project directors are Susan Longtin, Lake Shore's computer technology coordinator, and James Collins, a UB professor of learning and instruction.
