The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction Office of Early Learning has developed and released “Literacy at Home.” This digital resource provides literacy activities at each grade level, pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. Families and communities may access this resource for activities that specifically target the literacy skills of phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and oral language. When children grow in each of these foundational areas they are well on their way to becoming proficient readers.
Literacy at Home
Robeson County Literacy Overview
Mission: “Educating All Students by Building a Foundation for Learning in an Ever-Changing Global Society”
Vision for Literacy in the Public Schools of Robeson County:
We believe that all teachers contribute to the progression of literate, college and career ready students. The Comprehensive Literacy Plan for the Public Schools of Robeson County integrates a balanced approach to reading, writing, speaking, listening, language, and 21st century skills within each content area.
PSRC will increase capacity of all instructional staff to effectively teach reading and writing evidenced by PSRC’s Professional Development Schedule as measured by student success on summative assessments (EOG, EOC, NC Final Exams, ACT, WorkKeys).
All students will increase reading proficiency by showing growth as measured by goals set within individual school settings; NCDPI assessments and EVAAS data will be compared annually to determine if reading proficiency has been achieved.
Beginning the 2013-2014 academic year, all students will write routinely across all content areas for a range of time frames, tasks, purposes, and audiences as measured and evidenced by a portfolio of student writing samples (i.e. digital portfolio, writing folders).
By June 2017, all graduating seniors will be college and/or career ready as measured by the college readiness indicators set by the ACT and/or as measured by the attainment of at least a Silver Level on the WorkKeys assessment. .
Robeson County Mathematics Overview
Activities emphasize key math vocabulary, concepts, and process skills. Students are encouraged to share their answers and compare their methods and strategies.
Numeracy skills give children an important start to their learning and development. These skills help prepare students for daily life such as handling money and problem solving, at all ages.
Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantage
This program provides financial assistance to public schools to help ensure that all children meet challenging academic content and student academic achievement standards.
LEA’s target the Title I funds they receive for schoolwide programs that serve all children in the school. Title I funds are used for children from preschool age to high school, but most of the students served are in grades 1 through 8. Title I funds are used to upgrade the instructional programs for the whole school.
