    Essentials of English 

    COURSE DESCRIPTION: This is an intensive reading and writing intervention program designed to support students whose reading achievement is below grade level.  The program directly addresses individual needs through adaptive and instructional software, high-interest reading material and literature, and direct instruction in reading & writing skills.

     A TYPICAL CLASS: Students will spend about 25 minutes at each rotation.

    Small Group – Students receive individualized, teacher-led instruction to help them master basic reading and writing skills.

    Independent Reading – Students select novels at their reading level and read them at their own pace. Each student is required to maintain a reading log/reflection journal and update progress on a daily basis.

    Instructional Software/Computer Work – Students receive individualized, computer-guided instruction in reading, vocabulary, and writing using the Empower 3000 instructional software.

    • Students are responsible for completing all missed work after being absent from school.
    • Class assignments and announcements will be posted on our Google Classroom page. All students will be provided with a code on the first day of school to access the page. 
    • School rules and consequences are outlined in The JLHS student handbook.
    • All high school students are expected to know and follow what is in the handbook.
