Grades 4-12

Any student in grades 4 through 12 who scored a Level 1 or Level 2 on a school or state assessment are encouraged to opt into the Level Up step-by-step Reading process or English process. Note: The Reading Level Up program is different from The Level Up English program. Some parents may want their child to participate in both or choose one or the other. Lessons are created using Articulate Rise and Storyline.

Level 3 or higher Reading and English learners will receive regular tutoring services and can also receive a county or state-approved Reading text to obtain aspects of increasing their levels also during or after each session. However, they will not go through the step-by-step Level Up process for Level 1 and Level 2 clients. (Reading assessment is optional) Articulate Rise and Storyline can be utilized for test preparation.  

 

ESOL Learners

ESOL learners will receive strategies that will assist with accent lessons, vocabulary, Reading, and English skills. Different models will be utilized based on the client’s proficiency levels.

We always utilize WIDA which includes the 4 domains - Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking skills.

Weekly homework will be given along with best practice strategies. Literacy assessments are utilized for students and adults.
