    2019-2020 Course Description: 
    Our reading intervention class is called Literacy Power Hour.  Some schools call it reading intervention, developmental reading, or Read 180.  Students who have additional literacy needs will have a double-dose of literacy. They will take my class in addition to the standard core English Language Arts class. My class will be differentiated to meet the individual needs of each student. We will focus on reading and writing skills, phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and the simple joy of reading. We will use a variety of assessment tools to determine which students are a best fit for Literacy Power Hour. This year I am excited to welcome a second reading intervention teacher, Mr. Martin, to our team, who will assist in serving our students.
