Collaboration on the Summer Side: University Students Totor at Jacksonviille Public Library

Excerpt: “In a tutoring session to help students organize story ideas, Erika Orlowski, elementary education major, directed four boys seated around a table at the Southeast Regional Library, part of the Jacksonville (FL) Public Library system, to write a topic sentence on the top of a hamburger bun. The three main story ideas were to be written on a leaf of lettuce, a slice of tomato and a rather thick burger, with the finishing thought to be placed on the bottom of the bun─all drawn on paper, of course.
