Core Classroom Instruction & Learning Labs

Core Classroom Instruction:

English Language Arts Core Curriculum:

Collaborative Literacy marries the latest research in literacy education with useful, concrete support for teachers to build a caring classroom community that motivates and inspires students to grow as readers, writers, thinkers, and principled people.  Collaborative Literacy is a rigorous, yearlong curriculum for students that addresses the core reading, writing, and speaking and listening skills that students need while fostering their growth as caring and collaborative individuals. 


Math Curriculum:

Provided by classroom teachers and differentiated as needed.

Reveal Math is a comprehensive mathematics curriculum with the goal of helping students see math not just as a series of computations and procedures, but as a way of visualizing and communicating about their worlds and solving problems. A second goal is to help students realize that being proficient doers of mathematics does not require speed with operations, but creativity, thoughtfulness, and flexibility. Reveal Math is a current, researched based, standards aligned curriculum.


Title One Elementary Reading and Math Learning Labs

Provided by learning lab teachers and educational technicians.

When differentiated classroom instruction is not enough, a student may be recommended to the Reading or Math Lab for additional support.  A Personal Learning Plan (PLP) is developed and appropriate goals, interventions, instruction, and setting are designed to meet the needs of the student.  This learning environment offers targeted, specialized instruction in a small group setting. Learning lab teachers and/or trained educational technicians provide the instruction. These interventions may be short-term, long-term or more intense until the student demonstrates a solid understanding of the skills and strategies needed to reach grade level goals.


Our goal is to get students transitioned back into the classroom for their instruction as soon as they are able to maintain consistent progress at their grade level.
