    SVSU to host summer literacy camp
     
    Saginaw Valley State University will continue its commitment to community-minded educational opportunities by hosting a literacy clinic to improve students' reading skills for three weeks this summer.
     
    The clinics will be held Monday through Friday, June 24-28; Monday through Wednesday, July 1-3; and Monday through Thursday, July 8-11, with sessions occurring each of those days at 9 a.m., 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.
     
    These lessons will be held in The Literacy Center in SVSU's Gilbertson Hall, Room GN 117.
     
    The entire tuition for the program is $300, including a $50 non-refundable deposit. Participants must complete a reading assessment before the clinic begins; sessions are available Monday, June 17 and Tuesday, June 18 at 3 p.m., 4 p.m., 5 p.m. or 6 p.m.
     
    To track their progress, all participants will also have a final observation provided by a tutor to measure progress.
     
    Every tutor is a certified teacher with extensive classroom experience. They will be utilizing a research-based tutoring system to design individualized lessons for each student.
     
    To enroll in the clinic, contact Laurie Ann Haney, assistant director of SVSU’s Literacy Center, at 989-964-4982 or lahaney@svsu.edu. For more information, visit www.svsu.edu/literacycenter/.
