Language Arts Resource provides a small group environment that allows for extra drill, instruction, and practice in reading and English. All classes begin the year with a diagnostic assessment of each student’s strengths and needs. An inventory is also administered to consider each student’s interests to help build a nurturing environment. The Wilson Reading System (WRS) is a highly structured reading and writing system that serves as an intervention and helps struggling readers learn the structure of words and language by directly instructing students to decode and encode fluently. Novels are also read to acquaint the student with higher level analytical skills. AIMSweb probes are used to chart student progress in reading and English. English classes begin with a topic to journal for ten minutes. English assignments correlate with the English lessons in the general education classroom but with more individualized attention. Support is provided in other subject areas as needed.
