The Camp Sharigan program has undergone rigorous university testing and research proves that it is more effective than one-on-one tutoring. How is that possible? The Camp Sharigan program teaches vowel clustering. Research has shown that vowel clustering is much more effective than any whole language and/or phonics teaching methods. In a one-week test of the Camp Sharigan program, the Camp Sharigan children outscored children receiving one-on-one tutoring. One year later, from just the one-week camp, the Camp Sharigan children were still ahead of the one-on-one tutored students. Camp Sharigan is a new method that works, has undergone numerous tests, and can help any child improve reading scores.
What do we need from the community? Help us find 30 children who need help in reading. St. John’s will also provide a free training program on vowel clustering on Saturday January 26th at 10:00 AM in the Community Life Building at St. John’s UMC. We need 10 volunteers per day to help work with the children. Teachers, parents, seniors, and even teenagers may volunteer to work in this program. You do not need teaching experience. Everything is included in the program. If you would like to register a child for the reading clinic or if you would like to volunteer to work at the reading clinic (even for just one day), please call Elaine Clanton Harpine, Ph. D. at 361-867-8040 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
