Help the English Tutoring Project help new English language learners by donating a book to a Take Home Library of Dual Language Books
Launch Date – July 1, 2017 to August 31, 2017
Our Goal is to create a “Take Home and Read Library” of dual language early learning books for our beginning level students.
Why do they need a Take Home Library?
--Connect 2 generations, parent/caregiver and child, through learning to read in Spanish and English
--Improve a child’s reading performance by reading orally and listening
--Bring about improved attitudes toward learning English and reading
--Respectful of language of the home
--Not all homes have books for reading
--Parent/caregiver are able to be active in the child’s education
Who are the students?
--They are from families who represent over 15 languages, many speaking more than one.
--4% are European, 18% are Asian, 74% are Latin American, 4% are African
--90% of the students we assist with tutoring qualify for free and reduced lunch according to Federal poverty guidelines
--100% of the students are in Catholic schools in St. Louis City, St. Ann, and St. Charles City
