Bank Street College of Education

Who Is Eligible:

Sixteen Bank Street College graduate students (half-time members) serve in three New York City public schools with culturally diverse populations (grades K-5). Members work with students in one or more varied educational formats. They work with students on a one-to-one basis and/or in small groups on reading, writing or language arts. Sometimes they assist classroom teachers during literacy blocks, such as "reading time" and/or during "writer's workshops."


Some members read novels and lead discussions (to further comprehension) with students in the context of "literature circles." Members meet weekly for training with a Bank Street College of Education staff member who is a literacy specialist. (Participation in this program is limited to Bank Street College students who are currently enrolled in fieldwork.)
