Education Department Participates in S.P.I.R.E Training

October 2, 2011

The Education Department participated in an informative hands-on training in one of our new reading programs: SPIRE (Specialized Program Individualizing Reading Excellence).  This is a research-based program that provides student with a direct, systematic, sequential approach to reading. Teachers were very enthusiastic about the program itself, and optimistic about the positive results it can bring for our students. 
The success of the SPIRE program is based on daily instruction that provides students with very specific work on phonological awareness, phonics, handwriting, fluency, vocabulary, spelling, and comprehension. We learned and practiced how to create daily 10-step lesson plans, along with some great ideas for making the lessons engaging and fun.
