Ed Lab Extends CCCC Partnership, Adds Middle Grades Tutoring

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

The Watson College of Education serves the children of Southeastern North Carolina with one-on-one tutoring through the Betty Holden Stike Education Laboratory.  Over the past 25 years more than 5,000 students have come through the Ed Lab located on the main campus.  In 2009, WCE opened a second Ed Lab in partnership with Coastal Carolina Community College (CCCC) to serve children in Onslow County.  In July, the College signed a Memorandum of Understanding with CCCC to extend this partnership for an additional three years.

In other news, this fall the main campus Ed Lab welcomes middle schoolers in addition to elementary students and children with special needs.  This change gives WCE students in the middle grades licensure program the opportunity to tutor students one-on-one.  It is expected that WCE preservice teachers will tutor 20 area middle school students through this program expansion.
