Literacy Education Faculty-Student Collaboration

Online candidates come to campus for a 2-week residency practicum experience in the summer. They work with students in local district summer school programs in the AM and run a Reading/Writing camp in the afternoon at the college Literacy Center.

The Summer Reading and Writing camp at Canisius College provides two weeks of enriching literacy experiences for children in grades 2-12. Students are engaged in highly motivating small group activities, working with peers and MS candidates. Canisius College faculty supervise the camp experience.

Content courses typically have 25 students or fewer. Writing intensive and practicum courses typically have 15 or fewer.
