Welcome to Reading Plus! The goal of this class is to help students improve their reading and comprehension in 6th grade. This will empower them to be more critical readers and thinkers for life. I focus on individual needs of each student. This is achieved through diagnosis of specific deficits and equipping students with reading and comprehension skills and knowledge that enable them to meet their personal goals and grade level standards. Another goal of the class is to promote "substantial and meaningful opportunities" for parents to participate in the education of their children. This will be achieved through email, letters and reports sent home, and in class opportunities.

The online computer reading program used at Highlands Middle School, Reading Plus, assesses reading rate, comprehension and vocabulary to create an appropriate intervention track for each student. Computer adaptive intervention provides instruction targeted to individual needs and ability. Performance goals are established and modified based on achievement. Supplemental instruction can also be printed off and be used with small group or one on one instruction to support weak skills.

This program can be accessed at school and at home. Students and I have access to immediate progress reports that detail weak skills for additional work so we can make informed instructional decisions. Our goal in the class is to bring students up to grade level as this will empower them for life and allow for more choices in their future.
