Dr. Dianna Townsend
During the 2013-2014 school year, Dr. Dianna Townsend is facilitating a year-long professional development course for high school teachers from Wooster and Hug High Schools. This course is part of the Striving Readers Grant and is titled “Active Academic Vocabulary Practice in Every Content Area.” Participating teachers will have the opportunity to build their students’ overall literacy skills, create and use research-based resources, build their Common Core expertise, collaborate with colleagues, and receive coaching and feedback on their practice.
The Regent Service Program awarded the Center for Learning and Literacy a Reading Buddies tutoring grant. Ten UNR undergraduate students are now tutoring forty elementary students at Kate Smith Elementary School.
