English Language Arts
The 2.5 hour English Language Arts block is broken into two parts: Wilson Reading System® and ELA & Social Studies.
- Wilson Reading System®: All students receive one hour of the Wilson Reading System® daily. The Wilson Reading System® is a multisensory and interactive intervention which utilizes a systematic and cumulative approach to teach total word structure for decoding and encoding, emphasizing the six syllable types. Our ELA teachers are Wilson® Dyslexia Practitioners.
- ELA & Social Studies: ELA teachers use the remaining 1.5 hours of their block to teach the ELA concepts of writing, speaking, listening, and language using the Benchmark Literacy program and social studies content using myWorld Social Studies.
