Language! is a complete literacy curriculum deeply rooted in research. The program's Six Steps lesson plans integrate the range of literacy skills, with frequent assessments and detailed differentiation guides to gauge mastery, allow timely adjustments in instruction, and promote student achievement.
TransMath is a comprehensive mathematics intervention that provides key foundational skill-building and problem-solving experiences for students. It provides support to students who lack the foundation skills necessary for successful entry into algebra and who are two or more years below grade level.
- Level 1 - Developing Number Sense
- Level 2 - Making Sense of Rational Numbers
- Level 3 - Understanding Algebraic Expressions
READ TO ACHIEVE
Read to Achieve is an innovative program that teaches comprehension strategies for the purpose of content-area mastery. It gives high-school students the confidence to tackle the complex forms of literacy they see in social studies, science, and English literature classes.
- Comprehending Content Area Text gives students daily exposure to the structure and layout of science and social studies texts.
- Comprehending Narrative Text teaches fiction and nonfiction comprehension strategies using selections from trade books and popular text.
- Ongoing Assessments to help teachers make data-driven decisions about modifying and supporting instruction
BLOCK MATH COURSES
Algebra I Block
Algebra I Block is designed to develop the algebraic and problem solving skills necessary for future study in mathematics. The topics covered deal with real numbers, solving and graphing equations and inequalities, factoring polynomials, algebraic fractions and simplifying radical expressions. This course includes lectures, classroom practice, and daily homework assignments. Algebra I is one of the three required math courses needed for admission to a four-year public college or a university in North Dakota. The block format of this course offers students an opportunity to work in the core math curriculum with an extra period of time for extended practice and re-teaching of concepts.
Geometry stresses the basic definitions of geometry and proficiency in formal proofs. Space geometry and plane geometry are integrated. Algebraic skills are reinforced as they are used to solve geometric problems. In addition, the course includes trigonometry, area, volume, coordinate geometry, and constructions. The course is taught through lecture, textbook exercises, worksheets, quizzes, tests, and computer use of Geometer’s Sketchpad. Students will further develop logic and spatial relationships. This course qualifies as one of the math requirements for university entrance. The block format of this course offers students an opportunity to work in the core math curriculum with an extra period of time for extended practice and re-teaching of concepts.
Algebra II Block
This course builds upon the topics that were taught in Algebra I and Geometry. The topics covered will include, but not be limited to, matrices, basic properties of real and complex numbers, solving equations and inequalities in one, two and three variables, absolute value, exponents, factoring, polynomials, exponential functions, logarithms, sequences and series, statistics, and probability. Students are involved in a question-answer class format with some lecture. Students have daily assignments and are assessed using quizzes and tests. The course is taught for those students who wish to learn more about the process of problem solving by using algebra. Algebra II is needed to continue a student’s education into higher levels of mathematics and is one of the required math courses for entrance into North Dakota universities. The block format of this course offers students an opportunity to work in the core math curriculum with an extra period of time for extended practice and re-teaching of concepts.
