Tutoring middle school students is an art as well as an academic endeavor. Join us to learn about what makes middle schoolers tick. This presentation will include important considerations for working with students in grades 6, 7 and 8, including developmental, social and behavioral realities. Participants will learn reading and writing support strategies for adolescents. The session will also address prompting and conversation strategies that can support students’ reading and writing across the disciplines. This session is appropriate for new and returning tutors.
