Vocke & Summer Migrant Programs
Karen Vocke is spending time this summer in Hartford, Michigan, as a consultant for the district's summer migrant program. She has worked with program director Cheryl Boothby and the district for more than three years in a research collaboration which resulted in Vocke's book, Where Do I Go From Here? Meeting the Unique Educational Needs of Migrant Students, published by Heinemann. Vocke will work with the teachers on writing pedagogy for English Language Learners. Additionally, she will coordinate evening literacy workshops for migrant parents. Vocke also works with educators in the Eau Claire summer migrant program.
