Training for the Future

The Adrian Dominican School of Education (ADSOE) at Barry University received a $9,625 grant from the Staples Foundation for Learning to train mentors in providing enrichment math and science instruction to elementary and middle school students in Miami-Dade, Broward, Lee and Collier counties.

This grant, which is part of a pilot program in collaboration with the Florida Independent College Fund (FICF), implements the MentorFlorida! project. The conceptual framework of the project utilized FICF Web-based tutorial modules, resources and ADSOE’s program specific courses, addressing educational methodology during the 2007 spring semester. The MentorFlorida! project served 20 undergraduate students, who trained and served as mentors in math and science programs in elementary and middle schools. In addition to their work with students, these mentors engaged in mentoring/coaching activities with their collaborating classroom teachers.
