Literacy Corner is now full for Summer 2015. Please contact Erikah Haavie at 864.294.3083 or to be added to the waiting list. Thank you.

June 10 - July 2

The Literacy Corner is a summer program for students ages 6-14 with academic needs in literacy processes like reading, writing, listening, speaking, and viewing. It will be taught by graduate  level, certified teachers pursuing their Furman's Masters of Arts in Education degree with a concentration in literacy.
This comprehensive literacy tutoring program will provide an individualized educational program; a one-to-one 60 minute tutoring session from Monday-Thursday; close communication with parents; and a final report to be shared with parents, students, and the school the child attends if the parent would like this.
At the beginning of the program, teachers evaluate each student individually. Then, a unique program will be determined for each child. The daily program will include a variety of reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing opportunities including warm-up reading, miscue analysis/running record assessments, writing activities, new reading and writing activities, and plans for reading and writing at home each day.
We are currently finalizing details for the 2015 program. For more information or to be added to our mailing list, please contact Erikah Haavie at 864.294.3083 or
