The Literacy Corps is an initiative with a goal to have every child reading independently by the third grade.  Metropolitan State supports this effort by integrating tutors into inner-city sites, including elementary schools and libraries, where they work directly with children facing significant language and literacy challenges.  This tutoring partnership is a vital component of each schoolís literacy efforts. 

Reinforcement reading tutors work one-on-one with elementary students.  The tutor and the child practice reading and engage in a number of activities designed to develop literacy skills.  Primary focus is on K-3 while other grade levels are included as deemed necessary.

Extended day participants meet with children before and after school in small groups where they may choose to read a book together and explore the story through a guided discussion, play literacy-based games, or collaborate on writing a story of their own.  Primary focus is on K-3 with other grade levels included as deemed necessary.

Read with Me and Homework Help tutors provide after-school literacy and academic tutoring to youth at the Daytonís Bluff Branch of the St. Paul Public Library during library hours.
