This class Period will consist of System 44. This System is a foundational reading program designed for the most challenged struggling readers in Grades 3-12. Intentionally metacognitive, System 44 helps students understand that the English language is a finite system of 44 sounds and 26 letters that can be mastered. My System 44 is being ordered, therefore, until it arrives, I will be determining students reading level independently through the Reading a-z assessment levels. Once reading levels are determined, students will read, either independently or in a small group, short passages and answer questions covering the passage. I will also individually administer the Dolch Sight word list and incorporate sight word recognition into student’s instruction.
