January 24, 2013
DEFIANCE, Ohio - Defiance College’s Reading Engagement and Development Center at DC (READ@DC) is now taking appointments for reading and writing support for students in grades K-12.
READ@DC will provide assessment/diagnosis services, remediation and tutoring in reading and writing by DC trained pre-service teachers. This program will be open through the end of April. Sessions are by appointment only, and cost is based on a sliding scale.
“The reading and writing center is a great opportunity to serve our community and also gives our teacher candidates another opportunity to polish their knowledge and skills as future teachers” said Dr. Sandra Golden, associate professor of education and associate provost of graduate studies and professional development. “Both skills and practice are critical to academic success, and through our center we want to provide students challenged in reading and writing with the best tutoring services that are both engaging and fun.”
The Reading Engagement and Development Center at DC operates as part of Project 701, a separate legal nonprofit, incorporated under the laws of the State of Ohio, run and managed by Defiance College students. The organization incorporates the strengths of various academic disciplines in order to develop innovative strategies to address community needs. It also provides entrepreneurial training and experience that will enable students to effectively use the skills and knowledge they learn in the classroom.
