HELPING CHILDREN ONE BOOK AT A TIME
At the Hartman Literacy and Learning Center, children and undergraduate teachers in training learn from and with each other. Children get the special attention they need to improve their reading skills — and understand what they read. Student teachers get firsthand experience with leading a classroom of their own. It's a special place that exemplifies Marquette's Jesuit mission of caring for the whole person and the College of Education's commitment to put outstanding, culturally sensitive teachers in urban classrooms.
