Roosevelt University's Language and Literacy Summer Reading Clinic is designed to improve the reading skills of students in grades K-12 while promoting a love of literacy. Enrollment is limited to forty-five (45) applicants. The teachers/coaches are licensed teachers who also are graduate students completing their practicum courses for a Master's Degree in Reading. A student-teacher ratio of 5:1 is the target for the clinic. Click here to view our mission and clinic directors.
Students work in small group settings and receive one-on-one balanced literacy instruction. Children and parents are provided with formative feedback on a daily basis. Teachers design appropriate activities and materials to meet each student's individual learning needs. Whether your child is struggling with literacy, or is excelling in reading and writing and wants to be challenged, the teachers will design a plan to fit him or her. A series of Living Literacy at Home parent and child workshops also are offered through-out the five weeks.
Your child will be immersed in the following experiences:
• read alouds • guided reading • drama • independent reading and writing • rigorous conversation • argument and debate • thematic units and book projects • presentations • research • computer applications • strategic teaching • guest speakers • author studies • integrated art/music/drama • field trips • book club
The clinic operates Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. - Noon. Plan to attend our Family Open House on June 9, 2016 from 4:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
