This summer, the Department of Education and Human Development will again sponsor a five week Reading Institute for area school children who are experiencing difficulties or need a little extra help with their literacy development.
In order to participate in the Institute, children should be between the ages of 7 and 12 and have demonstrated difficulties with reading that interfere with their ability to make progress in school. During the Institute, children will be placed in groups of two or three and work with two tutors. Each tutor is a certified elementary teacher and is presently a candidate for a master’s degree with an emphasis in literacy education here at Brockport. Direct supervision of the tutors will be provided by members of the Department of Education and Human Development’s adjunct literacy faculty.
While it is necessary to charge each child a $65.00 participation fee, this averages out to approximately $3.46 per hour for an individual assessment and tutoring program including the final reports. Moreover, no child who demonstrates a genuine need and interest will be excluded due to the inability to pay.
Directors: Don Halquist and Sue Geier
Location: Cooper Hall, The College at Brockport, SUNY
