Be better prepared for college and the workplace

Educators from L-W East, L-W North and the University of St. Francis will share what students can do to prepare for upper level reading in class, on the ACT and in the workplace.

 

   Find out how the reading departments at Lincoln-Way East and Lincoln-Way North high schools can better prepare students for college and the workplace.

 

   Both schools are hosting a Reading Night this month, giving sophomores and juniors – as well as their parents – an opportunity to learn what to expect from reading and how they can prepare for upper level reading in class, on the ACT and in the workplace.

 

   Guest speakers include Dr. Kevin Spicer and Dr. Karen Duys from the University of St. Francis.

 

   Spicer will attend East’s Reading Night, which is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13 in the East auditorium, 201 Colorado Ave., Frankfort.

 

   Duys will attend North’s Reading Night, which is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20 in the North auditorium, 19900 S. Harlem Ave., Frankfort.

 

   Additional speakers include Lincoln-Way East teachers John Cupp, Lindsay Doyle and Jenna Sabatino who will speak to East students and parents about reading at the AP level and ACT/PSAE prep.

 

   Lincoln-Way North teachers Manale Baya and Amy Jacobucci will do the same at North.
