Reading Coaches for Kids
In partnership with Sycamore Sam’s Readers from Indiana State University (ISU), the VCPL LifeLong Learning Center is a reading coaching site for elementary school-aged children. Struggling readers in grades K -5 are pre-tested for their reading level and matched to an ISU student who has been trained in a literature-based coaching program. Reading Coaches and children are matched one-to-one, for an hour-long session each week. Post-testing is conducted to assess gains in reading levels.
Online registration is required. Click here to register. The 2019 Fall sessions will begin on September 16 in the Vigo County Public Library’s Lifelong Learning Center (LLC).
