School of Education Students Strive to Improve Youth Reading and Writing Skills

Junior Caroline Johnston shares a happy moment with a first grader as she sounds out words during her lesson.

UWM School of Education students work with young students to enhance their reading and writing skills. The six ways the UWM students help to improve these skills are through tutoring, bilingual teaching, building and utilizing ‘Word Headquarters,’ partnering and strategizing with Bradley Tech High School educators, encouraging the Early Reading Empowerment program, and preparing reading teachers.
