Eastern Graduate Students Participate in Reading Specialist Program

Eleven graduate students from Eastern's Reading                                                        Specialist Program spent five weeks thisjackon and monroe.jpg summer                                                      working one-on-one with struggling young elementary school readers in the summer school program held at Windham Middle School. The specialist candidates were able to apply the skills they have learned in their courses to assess student needs, provide individualized instruction and monitor the progress of the young readers. Every elementary school student made the equivalent of at least one year of progress during this concentrated program, while the graduate students were able to put their learning into practice. A student receives a high-five for his response in a word-study game from Specialist Candidate Nina Jackson.
