Feature Article:

In her first semester of teaching service-learning courses, Dr. Jessica Morris and her students’ served with the Boys & Girls Club of Southeast Georgia. Students in the two sections of Developing Readers, Writers, and Speakers course introduced Pre-k through 5 learners to reader’s notebooks. As the teacher education candidates introduce the children to these notebooks, they teach the kids how to use the notebooks and assess the students reading and writing skills. After the teacher education students have assessed the younger students' skills, they create a plan to work with the children to improve these skills. Students were given the chance to demonstrate their teaching and assessment skills by completing this project.

“Dr.  Morris has gone above and beyond to build a fruitful and lasting relationship with the Boys & Girls Club of Southeast GA.  Her teaching students have given time to serve our youth since January.  They were hard working, dependable and caring.   We are confident Dr.  Morris' influence is the reason for these positive attributes.  We look forward to Future endeavors with Dr. Morris.”
