K-3 READING CORPS AT A GLANCE / FOR MEMBERS
Michigan Education Corps’ goal is to help every Michigan child become reading proficient by the end of third grade—a goal that we can only reach with your help. As a Michigan Education Corps Reading Corps Interventionist, you’ll work with children in kindergarten to third grade to provide proven research-based instruction and practice, and ultimately help struggling students reach their potential.
Michigan Education Corps K-3 Reading Corps is an AmeriCorps program. MEC K-3 Reading Corps members (interventionists) commit to serving up to 1,200 hours following the school calendar. This commitment breaks down to up to 35 hours a week during the school day. MEC provides each member the training and support needed to successfully help students become reading proficient. In order to achieve this goal, K-3 Reading Corps members provide scripted, evidence-based, one-on-one literacy interventions outside of the student’s teacher-led core reading or math instruction time. These interventions focuses on phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency and comprehension.
