to the Betty Holden Stike Educational Laboratory at UNCW
The Betty Stike Educational Laboratory at the University of North Carolina Wilmington is designed as a critical component of the undergraduate elementary and special education programs. Students practice the methods they are learning in their courses by tutoring a child in a one-on-one setting.
Tutoring is designed as a positive experience, focusing on the child's strengths, needs, and interests. Students are coached as they learn new strategies and skills in reading, writing and mathematics. Open communication with parents is also an important part of the Ed Lab experience.
The Ed Lab is located in the Watson College of Education Regional Educational Resource Center. It provides an environment rich with print and non-print media, manipulatives for math, and a wide variety of materials and supplies which invite learning.
