Year of the Teacher Weekly Feature: The Literacy Center
The Buffalo State Literacy Center offers clinical diagnosis and tutoring for K–12 students who need help with literacy skills.
Diagnosis is completed in the fall semester and involves the administration of both formal and informal assessments in order to determine a child’s strengths and needs in the area of literacy. Teachers in the program are graduate students completing their literacy specialist certification or master’s degree in education. These Buffalo State students work under the leadership of the director of the Literacy Center, Keli Garas-York, associate professor of Elementary Education and Reading, and with guidance from experts in the reading field.
