    Course Description: High School Reading 2 is designed for students who could benefit from additional literacy support in order to read at grade level. The focus of this course is to provide students with explicit, direct instruction in reading fluency, vocabulary development, and comprehension strategies. Students’ strengths and weaknesses are addressed through whole and small group guided reading instruction. Emphasis is placed on understanding text structure, building background knowledge, making relevant connections to text, asking questions, inferring, summarizing, and synthesizing and will aid in comprehension of the content area reading. Grade level History and Science textbooks, along with study guides, and primary and secondary sources will be utilized throughout the year. Comprehension in support of English classes will focus on poetry, short stories, plays, and novels and provide another level of support to students at risk of performing below the level of “Proficient” on 9-10 grade Common Core Reading Standards. Note: This course does not fulfill the NCAA core course requirements for student athletes.
