LEAP UP: Service Learning as the Centerpiece of a University-School Partnership
Peck, Jacqueline K.; Zachariah, Sajit; Bozeka, Jennifer
Metropolitan Universities, v19 n4 p33-37 2008
A long-running university-school partnership is the foundation on which LEAP UP, the Literacy Enrichment and Active Participation University Partnership, is built. Services learners from a variety of The University of Akron programs provide one-on-one support for struggling readers at Leggett Elementary School. Key to the program's success is high expectations for achievement by the Leggett students; program materials aligned with state and national standards; and research-based best practices for developing literacy skills in developing readers.
