This class offers students an opportunity to learn and practice basic methods of tutoring elementary children in reading. Students will meet on campus for the first part of the semester to be trained, and then will be assigned to a nearby elementary school where they will have in-depth practice at tutoring elementary children. This course, which provides an early field experience for students interested in elementary education, may be taken once for credit. Prior to beginning work in the schools, students may be required to be fingerprinted and pass a TB test.
