Literacy Intervention Course Description
An avid reader from a young age, teaching English/Language Arts and Reading has always been a passion. Growing up, my brother struggled with reading, and watching it “come together” for him in middle school encouraged me to focus my education and teaching on finding ways to help struggling readers succeed. We are ALL readers! When I’m not reading, I can be found journaling, walking, cooking, or playing with my 3 kids.
In this class we will explore reading comprehension, fluency, phonics, and writing.
Units of Study:
By the end of the year, students will have explored these concepts through guided and independent reading, reader’s theater, guided and independent writing, and whole group discussions.
Types of Learning:
Students will show their understanding by reading increasingly challenging texts and holding individual and group discussions related to these texts.
How to get extra help:
I am available after school until 3:30 on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays for extra help. I can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at extension 7863.
