Breakfast cereal. It can be a part of a healthy breakfast. Thanks to Annette Hilger, it can now be a part of a healthy tutoring session.
Annette Hilger is a coach with IUPUI’s America Reads*America Counts program (a Federal Work-Study tutoring program for children in grades K-9).
Annette, a freshman Pre-Physical Therapy/Exercise Science student at IUPUI, was recently looking for a better way to engage one of her students in the stories they read together. She also wanted her student to think more deeply about stories’ events and characters.
So, she turned to breakfast cereal. Seriously. And what she did is seriously outstanding.
Her supervisor told us that at the end of each tutoring session, Annette’s students give her a huge hug and tell her that they can’t wait until she comes again. After you read her strategy, you’ll want to give her a hug, too.
