2017 mid-year CAPA Progress Report

CAPA Progress Report

July 2016 - March 2017

Writing Program

This program is run by High School students (Tutors) with adults' supervision. Tutors are responsible for curriculum development, class arrangement, teaching and tutoring, and communicating with parents and students. Students are 2nd - 7th graders who are interested in improving their writing skills. The High School students not only teach writing but also set up a role model for the younger students. Comparing to adult teachers, the younger students feel more connected to the older ones therefore are more engaged to learn with fun activities.
