Work by Interns Since 2006

Since 2005 more than 30 interns from colleges in the Chicago region, and from countries like South Korea, China, and India, have spent time with the Tutor/Mentor Connection, ranging from one week to a full year.

Each has been asked to review ideas shared on Tutor/Mentor Connection (T/MC) and Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC web sites, then write a blog article, or create a visualization, that shares their interpretation of what they are reading and what this means to other people.

If you scroll back through articles on this blog, all the way to 2006, when Michal Tam wrote this introduction, you can see work that has been done.  For archive purposes, I'm listing below some of the visualizations that were created.  Visit this page to learn more about interns who have worked with us. Visit this page to see projects that have been done.  Visit this group on Ning to see how Interns have been supported in doing this work.

The work these students have done  has been invaluable. Yet, it's greatest potential is to inspire other students from cities around the world, to create their own versions of the same projects or to interpret other ideas shared on the Tutor/Mentor Blog or Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC web sites. Through such efforts more adults might be reached, who will actually adopt and implement these strategies in locations throughout the world.
