Reading Instruction at OMS
At Osceola Middle School, students scoring a level 1 or 2 on the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) reading test are receiving intensive instruction, in addition to their language arts class. Additionally, those students who do not have an Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) score are assessed to determine whether or not they would benefit from the intensive reading classes. If their scores indicate a need for the program, we are serving them as well. The intensive reading classes are designed to address, in a smaller group setting, the students’ individual remedial needs while their on-grade level needs are being addressed in their language arts class.
The reading classes are designed to provide effective instruction along with individualized attention by utilizing technology, working in small group rotations, and frequent monitoring of progress.
