Last weekend, our Director of Mentoring Programs, Dennis Quinn, presented results from our Read, Think, Share mentoring program at the 9th annual Literacy Essentials Conference at Central Connecticut State University.
Students working with Read, Think, Share mentors report increases in reading persistence and comprehension, along with stronger writing skills. Most importantly, the program makes reading and writing a daily habit.
One student Dennis featured in the poster said, “This class has improved my reading. It has made me more interested in books, and I've been reading a lot more because of this class. I've read about six books and am still reading more.”
It's all made possible by our amazing crew of mentors!
