Language arts studies are designed to improve students’ proficiency in both reading and writing on state standardized testing, local school assessments as well as Hospitality House academic testing. Our Urban Learning Center (ULC) provides academic intervention, support and individual attention in an environment that enhances self esteem, builds confidence and develops character.
The Urban Learning Center undergoes a yearly assessment from Minneapolis Public Schools based on transparent reporting by frequent monitoring conducted by MPS Extended Learning Staff.
“The week I was here, we watched the “Readers Theatre”, which is a short play that the kids did. I Thought it was a perfect way to get the kids reading and thinking. They were really into it and interacted with each other a lot. They had fun making props and using funny voices.” – America Reads Volunteer.
