Our Fellows work with groups of 2-6 students at a time to provide differentiated instruction in literacy and math. Fellows design and implement Common Core-based, rigorous, and authentic lessons that meet the individual needs of the students they serve. In addition to math and literacy instruction, our Fellows also build our students non-cognitive skills through an integrated curriculum model where students develop the grit, perseverance, and confidence they need to be successful in the classroom and beyond.
In addition to teaching small groups and tutorials, our Fellows spend part of each day working with their lead teacher in the whole-class setting. In this capacity, Fellows work with their teachers to further differentiate lessons and address the multiple learning styles of the students in the classroom. With the addition of a Fellow to the classroom, students have twice the opportunity to engage and connect with an adult, are able to get more immediate feedback on their work, and most importantly get the individual support and attention they need to be successful.
After school, our Fellows are part of our Out of School Time Program where they design and teach engaging and inspiring enrichment courses for our students. These courses, ranging from African dance, to 4-H, to Girls Group, to Junior Achievement, to Destination Imagination, give our students the opportunity to learn, play, and explore beyond the walls of the classroom. In all enrichment courses our Fellows encourage our students to develop their passions, interests and identities as individuals within a larger community, and foster our students’ sense of stewardship as emerging leaders of the future.
