The Learning Center—also known as “Reading Club” and “Math Club”— was established as an intervention class to provide extra support to students. Individualized programs are modified throughout the year to meet specific student needs.
Students are provided 20-30 minutes of differentiated instruction in the areas of reading and mathematics, based on the data that is received from the Reading Lions English Language Arts Assessment and the Math Quarterlies, both of which are given to the students every 6 weeks to monitor their progress. Students spend a period of approximately 3-4 weeks working on a skill that they are struggling with. After 3-4 weeks, they are reassessed and if they have achieved the targeted goal they no longer are in need of intervention. If they still need support, they may continue receiving intervention. In most cases, the students receive intervention outside of their regular language arts and mathematics time. This allows the students to take advantage of the full instruction provided by their teacher and then receive extra help.
