Literacy Enrichment 8
Students may register for this course or be recommended for enrollment. This course is for the student whose reading and writing performance indicates a need to strengthen basic reading and writing skills and strategies. Through direct instruction, multimedia applications and exposure to a variety of reading materials, including fiction and nonfiction, the student becomes more adept at meeting the reading and writing requirements of middle school. Classroom instruction supports and improves the reader’s ability to decode words, comprehend text, expand reading and writing vocabularies and apply reading-to-learn strategies to other subject areas. Writing instruction and writing opportunities improve the student’s ability to organize ideas and express them clearly. To ensure that the needs of individual students are met, several approaches to Literacy Support are available. These approaches may include Multimedia Literacy, Soar to Success or the Autoskills program.
