Project Report | Dec 6, 2012
Autumn Updates at Yspaniola

By Yspaniola Local Team | Project Leader

Yspaniola is proud to celebrate the continued success of the University Scholars Program, which fully supports from Batey Libertad while they study at UTESA in Santiago. Our newest scholars, Julio Louis, studying Tourism, and Ramon Sanchez, studying Medicine, are both incredibly motivated and have adapted quickly to both the demands of UTESA and the activities which Yspaniola provides to complement university coursework.

Along with Mayra and Fede, Julio and Ramon have excelled at UTESA in their given fields. The scholars have found themselves working frequently in foreign languages, as well as perfecting their Spanish comprehension and writing skills. Our commitment to improving the skills essential to professional life keeps us in constant search of innovative teaching tools and resources. Recently, our scholarship coordinator, Mirta Aguirre, participated in an educational debate tournament in Haiti, where she acquired helpful techniques that will supplement her individual tutoring sessions with each scholar. 

In addition to the happenings at UTESA, Julio Louis recently graduated from the American Language Partnership International, a prestigious English language institute in Santiago. He placed among the top three students in his graduating class. We are confident that Julio, graduating from UTESA next year, will excel in all that he sets out to do. 

This Fall, Yspaniola's local team conducted the Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA) with students in the Literacy Center and in the Batey Libertad public school. The EGRA, developed by USAID and RTI, is an innovative tool to assess student's weaknesses in oral and written comprehension, as well as phonemic awareness and Spanish fluency. The EGRA results will help Literacy Center staff to implement targeted interventions with each student, as well as assist public school teachers in targeting their own students' weaknesses.
