Literacy Committee

Advantage Academy Literacy Committee has been created recently to help identify how we help students with authentic literacy.

The purpose of the literacy committee is to help Advantage Academy students develop a strong foundation in reading, listening, writing and speaking in order to build literate students for a successful future.

This is a need which affects comprehension and learning problems in all subjects.

This spring, the committee is meeting monthly to problem solve and determine ways to encourage real reading and writing in every classroom and establish clear expectations for every grade level in reading, writing, and research. In addition, the committee is reviewing current resources and recommending new ones for high need areas.

The enthusiasm is high and contagious. Educators at Advantage Academy want to radically make a difference to improve student learning.
