Brock University Reading Clinic

Hey Badgers,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend and enjoyed lots of home cooked food!

So this past term at Brock, I was enrolled in a class called EDUC 3P45: Reading and Literacy Development as part of the Concurrent Education program requirements. Click here to find the full course description. As part of the course, students were given the opportunity to volunteer as a tutor at the Brock Reading Clinic. The Brock Reading Clinic is a non-profit group that provides reading help to different students in the Niagara region. Click here for more information on the Reading Clinic.

As a tutor, I was responsible for creating lesson plans specifically for my client and I would meet with my client once a week for about 1 hour to work on reading and literacy skills. The week before Easter long weekend was my last tutoring session with my student so as a farewell, and also to show her how proud I was of her achievements through the term, I put together a little Easter basket of goodies for her to take home!

The Easter basket I put together 🙂 (p.s. don't mind the Winnie the Pooh background, I really am a kid at heart)

In putting together that Easter basket, I was once again reminded of how much I enjoy teaching and interacting with different students. Although tutoring at the Reading Clinic was a big time commitment on top of my schedule this term, it was worth it in the end for the awesome learning opportunity.

So for you future concurrent education Badgers, keep this course in mind when you get into your 3rd year 🙂
