Sanjuana Carrillo Rodriguez (Kennesaw State University, USA), Megan Adams (Kennesaw State University, USA), and Kate Zimmer (Kennesaw State University, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-5225-1067-3.ch011
The aim of this chapter is to describe a partnership between a local university and a summer academy that provided a space for pre-service teachers (teacher candidates) to work with students from diverse backgrounds. Teacher candidates in a literacy assessment course assessed and tutored students in this summer academy. The chapter describes the tutoring program and the pre-service teachers' response to a teaching efficacy survey based on the work with students. Findings indicate that after the tutoring experience, teacher candidates felt more competent to engage students and to use literacy strategies with the students.
