Monday on Lake Effect: Helping MPS Students With Literacy Skills, Sustainability at Marquette

Aug 25, 2014

Monday on Lake Effect:

Lake Effect goes back-to-school, as students around the region get set for another academic year. We learn how older adults are helping MPS students with literacy skills. Then, why education reform advocates might do well to look to the experience in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. We’ll learn about new sustainability initiatives greeting students at Marquette University this year. And some insight into what makes a great teacher.
