TCRWP Saturday Reunion

The Teachers College Reading and Writing Project’s Reunion is this Saturday, October 27!  This is always a stand-out event with prominent guest speakers and literally hundreds of workshops offered for all levels all day long.  Past and present Literacy Specialist students and Institute participants come together…it’s like our very own Homecoming!  We know you have heard about it since September and hope that you are planning to attend.   The keynote begins at 9 am in Riverside Church, then sessions are all around campus.  There is no scheduled lunch break, so you may want to bring snacks.  Hope to see you there!

If you are willing to volunteer during the day, please contact Ryan Candalerio.

Opportunity for Paid Learning Opportunity

The Reading and Writing Project has an exciting opportunity for a select few LITI students to act as a paid coordinator with the Reading Rescue program. Reading Rescue is a program that trains paraprofessionals to provide intensive one-on-one reading intervention and works with schools all over the United States.


Selected LITI students, acting as a coordinator, will be coached and trained by Natalie Louis, a TCRWP Staff Developer, and Nora Hoover, the Reading Rescue Program Developer. Coordinators will also get a chance to practice this intervention work within their internship placements with an individual student. Then, coordinators will work with both Natalie Louis and Nora Hoover, and hold a course with paraprofessionals to train them in the Reading Rescue work. Student’s internships are a priority for LITI students, so the tutoring can happen at a school of your choice. This position will be paid at the rate of $20 per hour.


This is a wonderful learning opportunity that will help build your knowledge around early literacy skills and staff development training, plus you will get paid as you learn. This type of work will look great on resumes and give you a great knowledge base to draw from as you continue your work in literacy beyond this school year.
