Reading Clinics and Camps for K-6
The College of Education and Human Performance offers reading clinics for K-6 students each semester and a digital storytelling camp during the summer. Your child will be paired with an undergraduate or graduate education student for individualized support in developing their reading, writing, and thinking abilities. Reading and Language Arts faculty supervise all clinics and camps. Clinics are offered at two campuses: UCF Main Campus and UCF South Lake Campus in Clermont.
UCF Adolescent Reading Lab
UCF College of Education and Human Performance Graduate students in Reading Education will mentor and develop 6th-8th grade students' reading skills during this Adolescent Reading Lab (ARL) project. An emphasis of this program is helping students read and comprehend informational texts and improve their reading skills in the content areas. The final session includes a parent celebration with students demonstrating what they learned from the UCF ARL experience and sharing family literacy activities to further support students' reading skills. For more information contact Ms. Analexis Kennedy or Dr. Vicky Zygouris-Coe.
