Description

Class Experience

-The student will co-create realistic goals and stretch goals for enhanced reading performance
-The student will gain insight and self-knowledge about their own reading and writing skills
-The student will increase their confidence in the area of reading/writing (and overall)
- Formal and informal assessment will be used to make plans for individual strengths and weaknesses in the area of reading/writing
- Student performance will be assessed using grade-level norms in the areas of fluency, comprehension, and writing

I've recently spent three years as a public school teacher providing specialized reading services to middle school students. I've enjoyed utilizing technology-based learning management systems to administer academic material and academic tests online. In addition, I've served as a co-teacher in mainstream ELA classes and constructed instructional plans for individual student needs. 

I've also served as a K-8 enrichment coordinator/Talented and Gifted coach, implementing various assessment strategies while providing specific feedback on student work. 

Regardless of student ability, my passion is implementing modifications and accommodations for comprehensive support of student needs related to reading.

Homework for this class depends on individual student needs. However, all students will walk away from each session with goals, exercises, and reading tasks for experimentation. Please communicate with me directly about the desired amount of homework for your specific student. For example, some parents simply wish for their student to perform specific exercises in class with me due to an otherwise packed schedule. Other situations involve parents requesting more work outside of class. I am comfortable accommodating a variety of situations. Clear communication is the key. 
Supply lists will depend on individual student needs and how much parents wish to spend financially on materials and/or curriculum. In the first session, students will take a reading interest inventory and we will perform a few brief assessments. 
Informal assessment will be used throughout the reading and writing sessions. Adjustments will be made based on the student's needs. These adjustments include decisions around goal-setting, advice offered (based on research), and optional next steps. Most of all, I hope students feel comfortable and encouraged as readers and writers. ****For students working on fluency, more formal probes and assessment check-ins will be done on a bi-weekly basis****
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
