Welcome to the Roosevelt Middle School Literacy Learning Lab! We are all looking forward to a fun and challenging year. Let's look at what we will be learning and at some of our basic expectations for the Lab. These will help us be successful as individuals and as a community this year.
What will be done in this class?
The learning environment of the Lab will be focusing on making progress in the skills of reading and written language. Students will have opportunities to build academic skills through small group instruction, individualized targeted teaching, and computer-based learning. Skills addressed will include reading fluency, vocabulary development, reading comprehension and written language. This course has been designed to develop student's literacy skills.
