NCA Communications Students Guide Young Readers

collage8NCA students from the Communications Class spend time as Reading Coaches, guiding young readers from our neighbor school, New Discoveries Montesorri Academy.

Each week, high school students share a prescribed reading strategy with a variety of students grades 1 – 6.  Dr. Lora Dagel, the reading trainer, is very pleased with the program and is quite certain the increased reading scores are, in part, due to these wonderful reading coaches!  The Reading Coach Program is in its second year.  The relationship between the high school and grade school students in the program is quite magical.  NCA students look forward to it as much as NDMA students look forward to seeing their reading coach come down the hall!
