Saint Agnes uses a Balanced Literacy approach to teaching throughout the Primary, Intermediate and Upper Schools
In the Primary School, this means a comprehensive program of language arts acquisition that includes reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing. This approach includes teaching phonics, grammar skills, reading and comprehension strategies, and writing forms and skills. To learn more about Balanced Literacy in the Primary Grades, click here.
In the Intermediate School, students will develop the creative use of imagination through inquiry based learning. Students will model and develop study skills that will foster independence and advocacy in our Upper School and will have an emphasis on ServiceLearning.
In the Upper School, the Balanced Literacy approach addresses a specific topic from complimentary perspectives. For example, students study ancient Greece by learning about customs and traditions in social studies, reading “The Iliad” in literature, and creating a Greek artifact in art.
Teachers incorporate differentiated learning, small group activities, individualized assessments and instruction, group projects, and many other unique approaches to meet students’ academic needs. The “one size fits all” approach is a thing of the past. The Upper School incorporates a weekly session dedicated to learning study skills; students learn how to prioritize assignments, establish schedules for long-term projects, and manage their schoolwork in addition to extracurricular activities.
