Students Complete Summer Incentive Program
Local youth recently completed the Quest for Success Summer Incentive Program held July 1-28. The free activity was offered to Jefferson County students in grades 5-8 though the Virtual Learning Academy and they were eligible to receive prizes for participation in online career exploration. The prizes were provided by Kennywood Park, Burger King of Wintersville, Carnegie Science Center and the Jefferson County Educational Service Center. Quest for Success, which is sponsored by JCESC, is funded through a five-year, $850,000 grant through the Ohio Department of Education and provides activities for Jefferson County students in grades 5-8 to succeed in literacy, mathematics, social development, family support and community involvement.
Literacy Instruction Workshop Offered through Quest
A literacy instruction workshop will be offered for teachers this month to help engage pupils in the classroom.
  Sponsored by the Jefferson County Educational Service Center through its Quest for Success program, the workshop will be held on June 25-26 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the JCESC’s Professional Development Room in the Kenneth D. Simeral Building, which is located at 2023 Sunset Blvd. in Steubenville. 
  Dr. Megan Reister, assistant professor of education at Franciscan University, will serve as presenter and the sessions will explore the impact of identity in students with disabilities and lead to a discussion on culturally responsive instruction within the classroom. The majority of the workshop’s content will then work out of literacy instruction and how to use techniques to motivate reluctant readers. Inquiry-based learning and student engagement will be the key topics that will serve as a framework for increasing student motivation when it comes to reading and learning. Finally, time permitting, information about a collaboration project that incorporates these aspects will be shared with participants.
