Register Now For RU's 29th Annual Summer Reading Clinic!

Roosevelt University's Language and Literacy Summer Reading Clinic is designed to improve the reading skills of students in grades K-12. The clinic will run from June 13 through July 14, 2016.  Enrollment is limited to forty-five (45) children. The teachers/coaches are graduate students completing their practicum courses for a Master's Degree in Reading, and a student-teacher ratio of 5:1 is the target for the clinic.

Students work in small group settings and receive one-on-one instruction. Teachers select appropriate activities and materials to meet each student's needs. Whether your child is struggling with word recognition and comprehension, or is excelling in reading and wants to be challenged, the teachers will design a plan to fit him or her.

Our Summer Reading Clinic is led by Dr. Margaret Policastro, Professor of Language and Literacy and Director of our MA Program in Reading.  Dr. Policastro has more than 30 years of experience teaching both undergraduate and graduate students in language and literacy at Roosevelt University.  She has worked for more than 10 years on grant funded literacy projects in suburban and city schools and has published three books in the last three years on balanced literacy instruction and improving family-school connections.  All of the teachers in our Summer Reading Clinic are licensed and experienced elementary and high school teachers who are studying to become reading specialists in the state of Illinois.

More details about the Summer Reading Clinic are available on our website.  Registration will close soon, but we still have room for approximately 20 more students.
