Twenty teaching credential candidates from Cal State TEACH took part in the yearly Summer Learning Lab at Monterey Peninsula Unified School District. This year, the lab took place at Martin Luther King Elementary, where limited English speaking children were given specialized attention by teachers in training.
The students receive one-on-one support two hours a day. Later on, the children take other enrichment classes through the summer program MPUSD runs.
The results achieved through the lab are "phenomenal," according to organizer and former MPUSD principal Roger Dahl. "Students in many cases make progress equal to what they achieve during the school year in only three weeks of focused instruction."
Yay for attacking the "summer learning loss"
