How do we acquire literacy? What does balanced literacy look like in a Somerville classroom? How can I support reading compehension? How do I know whether a student is progressing? How can I help a child become an avid reader?
Somerville Public Schools welcomes new and returning volunteers to a free volunteer training to explore ways we can support student achievement in language arts.
There’s an exciting initiative happening in Somerville Public Schools and it’s name is X-Block. This is time set aside for Grades 1-8 for independent and group work to ensure that students are engaged in high level and purposeful intervention and/or enrichment activities.
Volunteers are currently needed to support reading activities and 1:1 literacy tutoring during X-Block. If you have one hour a week, consider spending it with a Somerville Public School student.
