PIMSER Regional Teacher Partners Train UK Tomorrow Corps
UK Tomorrow Corps Offers Unique Opportunity for UK Students, Appalachian Communities
Partnership for Math and Science Outreach Regional Teacher Partners trained undergraduate and graduate students in UK Tomorrow Corps on literacy and mathematics, enabling the interns to tutor students ages K-12 throughout 19 Eastern Kentucky counties.
Each UK Tomorrow Corps intern, selected through an application and interview process, was prepared for their placement throughout the year. Beginning with an “Introduction to Appalachia,” UK students first became familiar and comfortable with the region. Partners on campus, such as the Partnership Institute for Math and Science Education Reform (PIMSER), as well as the Carnegie Center For Literacy and Learning in Lexington, supported additional tracks of training in literacy and language arts and mathematics.
