Video profile of Christopher Cerf, a 2010 Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Prize in Education winner. Cerf is a creator of the acclaimed children's television show, Between the Lions, which has consistently demonstrated remarkable success at helping kids -- especially the poor and minority children at the highest risk of literacy failure -- learn to read.
Mr. Cerf applied the techniques he helped hone on Sesame Street to older students and then expanded its reach beyond television into a collection of resources for literacy instruction, including print materials, Web-based activities and classroom interventions. Between the Lions has appeared on PBS for nine seasons and received 10 Emmy Awards.
