Reader to Reader Key Part of Holyoke's Summer of Power
This summer, Reader to Reader was pleased to once again be part of Summer of Power (SoP) at Holyoke High School. SoP is a summer enrichment program that allows incoming ELL (English Language Learners) 9th graders to work on their English oral and written skills.
Ten Reader to Reader tutors hailing from UMass, Amherst College, Hampshire College, and Smith College assisted in the classrooms as students practiced their English, often through expressing their identities and values.
Over the five weeks of the program, it was wonderful establishing a rapport with the students and watching the friendships grow among them!
