RAISE READING ACHIEVEMENT BY THE POWER OF 2!
This a wonderful cross-age tutoring program that our students benefit from greatly. Our fourth grade tutors are paired up with second graders and our fifth graders are paired up with third graders. Under the supervision of a trained coordinator, cross-age tutors follow scripted lesson plans, modeling strategies for thinking about text. Tutors then guide their tutees in using these best practices independently. On average, tutees and their tutors gain at least one grade level in fluency and comprehension by the end of thirty lessons.
