This course is designed to meet the needs of students who need to improve their reading and math skills. The class provides teacher directed instruction as well as an individualized study plan.
Knowledge and use of the English language is highly recommended.
A variety of language arts, math, social studies, science, and ABE prep textbooks will be available to students for use while in the classroom. Computer programs and online programs will be offered to students as appropriate to academic levels, needs, and goals.
Students will be expected to be diligent in their studies as outlined in the individualized study plan, complete assignments in a timely matter, maintain consistent attendance, and respect others by adhering to classroom policy.
Students will begin the course by taking a 100 question Reading Assessment test. This score will determine the student’s reading level and will be used to implement the student’s individualized study plan. A CASAS pretest will be given and then later in the semester a posttest will be given to monitor progress. The student’s study plan will either be ABE or HSE, which will be laid out in their study plan tracking sheet. As a student progresses and needs arise, textbooks, materials, and computer programs will be adjusted and recorded on the student’s tracking sheet.
