Falcon Tutor Program Works With St. Paul Schools

DEC. 3, 2004--One hundred aspiring teachers at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls are tutoring students in Arlington High School, Eastern Heights Elementary and Highwood Hills Elementary in St. Paul as part of the course Teacher Education: Foundations of Multicultural Education, required for all education majors.

Through a joint service-learning effort with UW-RF's Upward Bound program, students in the UW-RF College of Education and Professional Studies are preparing students to take the Minnesota state basic skills test. Students are required pass a 10th-grade basic skills assessment test in order to graduate as part of the federal No Child Left Behind Act.

Jill Moe, director of the Upward Bound Program at UW-River Falls, believes the tutoring is a win-win situation. "UW-River Falls students receive quality educational experiences, learn the value of civic engagement and develop cultural competence, while St. Paul schools get much needed assistance in helping their students succeed," said Moe.
