The purpose of the academic resource department is two-fold. The first is Reading Recovery, a research based, short intervention program for the neediest first graders. Children meet one-on-one with a specially trained teacher for 30 minutes daily for 12 to 20 weeks. During this time, the Reading Recovery teacher brings these students up to grade level in fluency and comprehension skills.
The second purpose of the resource department is to assist the academic teachers in identifying and working with those students who need additional assistance in Language Arts and Math. The resource specialist works to assist and enable students in producing effective strategies for working on text reading (meaning, structure, visual and phonetic cues), as well as encourages and reinforces independent operating, problem detection, and problem solving in reading, writing and math.
