Course Description: 

This course series is for students reading more than two years below grade level who need intensive support or whose specially designed instructional needs can be met with this service. The focus will be on building basic skills students need to move on to core language arts supported by the reading/writing essentials class.  In this two-period block, students will learn fundamental language arts skills from the foundations of the sounds and meanings of words to the structures of the language and the basics of reading comprehension and essay writing.  Students will engage in activities that enhance phonemic awareness, reading fluency, vocabulary and word attack skills, spelling conventions, reading strategies, and the organization and production of writing.  Students will read fiction and non-fiction texts.  Though the class is highly structured, students will have opportunities to work with partners, evaluate their own progress, set goals, and receive differentiated help on areas of need.  Students will be placed in the appropriate course based on assessment data and/or IEP need, where applicable.  Please see your school counselor for placement.
