  • Enhance the classroom literacy environment, as described in the Early Literacy and Language Classroom Observation (ELLCO), to support the classroom in achieving a "Basic" or better score on the ELLCO by spring.

  • Record student and program data completely and accurately in an online database on a weekly basis; maintain confidentiality of all student data.

  • Participate in on-site coaching sessions (includes observation of tutor) two times per month to review student progress, plan, problem-solve, and set goals; act on constructive feedback from coaching sessions.

  • Provide opportunities for family literacy involvement for Reading Corps children, including implementing the Reading Corps family engagement literacy intervention "Talk, Read and Write with Me!"

Secondary Functions

  • Perform assignments and/or duties as assigned by Internal Coach, Master Coach, or Program Manager, excluding activities that would displace a staff member.
