SCSU tutoring program benefits NBAPS students
Saint Cloud State University Partnership Programming for Fall 2012 includes a Sunrise River School one-on-one reading practicum on Wednesdays after school. Eight area teachers are enrolled in the SCSU K – 12 Reading Certificate program. These teachers recently completed a seven-week primary reading practicum experience at SRS on Wednesdays from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the media center. Teachers were placed in a one-on-one situation with a first through third grade student, which required the facilitation of a 1 1/2 hour individualized reading tutoring session. SCSU professor, Dr. Ilene Christian, was on site at SRS each of the Wednesdays during the one-on-one reading tutoring sessions to provide both coaching and support to the graduate students throughout their practicum experience.
