Sophomores Mentor Connolly Students


Glen Cove High School students in Lauren Jensen’s 10th-grade English class traveled to Connolly School on May 20 to mentor young writers in Lucretia Simone’s third-grade class.

The sophomores provided one-on-one tutoring for the third-grade students that focused on all levels of the writing process, from composing a first draft to editing and revising. The writing mentorship is part of a social studies unit designed by the third-grade teachers at Connolly. The third-graders are currently composing persuasive essays on countries of their choice, a culminating assignment that teachers developed to emphasize writing across the curriculum.
