This June, Furman University will offer a summer program for students ages 6-14 with academic needs in literacy processes like reading writing, listening, speaking, and viewing. This summer 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, certified teacher participants will 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.


The Summer 2014 program is now full. Please contact Erikah Haavie at 864.294.3083 or erikah.haavie@furman.edu to be added to the waiting list. ​​
