Literacy Accelerators

Two to four times per week, Skyline High School teacher academy students assume the role of community educator at their feeder school, Stevenson Elementary. Activating high schoolers as community educators in this way creates a symbiotic relationship across all roles. Elementary students receive individualized instruction from cross-age peers. Classroom teachers are given additional support from trained tutors. High school students are given the opportunity to apply their tutor skills to facilitate learning, becoming adaptable and responsive to learners in the space.
