Congratulations to our Child and Adolescent Development department, which was highlighted in a recent Reading Partners newsletter! Read the full feature below.
Each year, Reading Partners collaborates with San José State University’s (SJSU) childhood and adolescent development (ChAD) program to provide opportunities for their undergraduate students, who are on-track to becoming educators, to work with local K-4th grade students in the Silicon Valley community. SJSU’s ChAD students learn the concepts around becoming effective instructors and educators in their coursework, and through the partnership with Reading Partners, their undergraduates are able to implement and refine the skills they learn through tutoring our students.
SJSU ChAD students have shown continued resiliency in how they deliver tutoring sessions to our students, whether it is online via our virtual platform or in person at our reading centers. We are constantly amazed by how thoughtful and committed ChAD students are; as a result, we want to commend and recognize our SJSU partners for serving as tutors and role models for many K-4th grade students throughout our community.
