After reviewing the reading curriculum K-12 we will remain with Abeka phonics at the center of our reading curriculum.
A leveled reading library of books will be purchased for each classroom K-5. Additionally, we will purchase leveled reading materials for 6th-12th grade.
We will also purchase a subscription for each student K-8th grade with the Accelerated Reader program. This will allow us to bolster our resources and foster a culture of readership at LCA.
Reading Strategies / Mini Lessons
We will proceed with professional development of our teachers and parents to teach the 5 primary responses to reading that students need to learn. Teachers will adopt best practices of teaching specific reading strategies through mini-lesson instrucion using mentor texts. These strategies will allow for multi-genre engagement, while focusing on making connections, such as:
Text to text
Text to life
Text to faith
Text to self
Text to world
