Teacher tutoring students with wording: Literacy Research Center & Clinic Tutoring

Literacy Research Center & Clinic

providing diagnostic assessment and individualized tutoring to school-aged students on the University of Wyoming campus in Laramie, as well as to students across the state.


Overview

Our focus is helping children who are experiencing difficulty learning to read and write. Working collaboratively with parents, teachers, school administrators, and Clinic faculty, tutors and coaches assess each child’s strengths and needs, and then implement appropriate research-based interventions. Children who participate have many different learning profiles. Some struggle just a bit, while others experience severe reading or writing difficulty. Some are diagnosed as having specific special education needs, while others are not eligible in their respective schools for special support services in reading and writing. Some do reasonably well in reading, but struggle in writing.

The faculty and tutors at the UW Literacy Research Center and Clinic are educators committed to continually improving their practice. They read and discuss current research and theory related to reading and writing development, as well as effective teaching practices. They seek not only to understand methodology, but also the research and theory behind the methodology. Tutors at the UW Literacy Research Center and Clinic work under the direct supervision of University of Wyoming faculty to deepen their understanding of research-based assessment and instructional practices within each of the five domains of literacy through discussion and shared inquiry, participate and engage in ongoing research projects, and engaged in weekly planning of intensive, systematic instruction aimed at working within children’s abiding interests while accelerating their learning gains. To this end, all tutoring sessions are video-recorded for teacher reflection, as well as for analysis of our instructional approaches.

"The LRCC was a great opportunity for me to learn more about myself as a teacher while also helping the bright minds of the future. The excitement and the energy in the LRCC is the best part about it..."
