For City of College Park residents only
The Summer Reading Program provides reading instruction and tutoring to children experiencing difficulty with reading. The program is taught by certified teachers who are enrolled in or have recently completed the graduate program in reading and literacy at the College of Education at the University of Maryland, College Park. They are generally K-8 classroom teachers with a wide range of experiences with diverse groups of children.
During the program, students receive lessons in phonics and spelling, reading fluency, comprehension and vocabulary, and writing. Teachers work in pairs to teach small groups of children. They utilize a variety of strategies and techniques to address individual reading needs. Emphasis is placed on helping children become more strategic and proficient readers.
