This spring semester, The Clubhouse, a free literacy outreach service offered by the University of Findlay, is again sponsoring the 1882 Club, which is challenging students in grades K-12 to read 1,882 minutes. That averages 627 minutes a month, 20 minutes per day!
Those who signed up on Jan. 25 received an 1882 club record sheet to chart their minutes, and to help them read along, a pencil and a bookmark.
Anyone participating has the goal of reading 1,882 minutes between Jan. 25, and April 25, 2016. During this time period there will be check-in meetings at the Davis Street Building at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 22, March 21, and April 25. During these check-in meetings participants post their minutes read on the 1882 Derrick, talk about what they’ve read, receive a new 1882 club record, and a “Thanks for reading” gift from the clubhouse!
On the last meeting, April 25, the 1882 club will have a celebration for all the participants.
Students are allowed to read books, magazines, newspapers, online articles, and instruction manuals for games. Text messages and emails do not count.
For more information, email Alison Baer, Ph.D., Clubhouse director and associate professor of education, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Clubhouse also offers Clubhouse Individual Program tutoring services. These tutoring sessions are offered Monday-Thursday with 45-minute sessions during the time frame from 4-7 p.m. They start Feb.1 in the atrium of the Davis Street Building.
Scheduling depends on the tutor and the space availability. The tutoring services are free as the tutors are paid through a grant from the Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation.
Those who cannot make their tutoring session, are asked to contact The Clubhouse within a few days before their scheduled tutoring time. Space is limited and tutoring is offered on a first come, first served basis.
