Many high school students don't respond well to traditional "skill-and-drill" or test-prep approaches. For them, as well as for the on-track students in your classroom, and the high achievers, the Georgia Academic Support Program for English Language Arts, High School is a comprehensive combination of material review, instructional approaches, guided practice, embedded assessments, and much more.

The Teacher Resource Binder is divided into four major units:

  1. Reading - Comprehension and Interpretation
  2. Reading - Making Connections and Evaluations
  3. Writing
  4. Conventions

You'll also find an introductory Teacher's Guide that includes graphic organizers, writing test rubrics, correlations to Georgia Performance Standards, and pre- and post-assessments. And there are suggestions for differentiated strategies for struggling students. The Georgia Academic Support Program for English Language Arts, High School has also been Lexile-leveled for reading passages throughout. 

Each of the dozens of units in the binder includes:

  • The Goal Statement
  • Words to Know
  • Mini Lesson/Guided Practice
  • Differentiated Strategies
  • Ongoing Assessment and Additional Activities
  • Student Activity Sheets
  • Post-Assessment

Where are teachers using the toolkit?

  • In summer school, intersession, or after-school tutoring programs
  • For vertical alignment across grades
  • For struggling learners
  • As a supplement or to boost traditional classroom resources

Perhaps the greatest strength of the Georgia Academic Support Program for English Language Arts, High School is its unique flexibility from classroom to classroom within a district. For veteran educators or for those new to teaching, the program provides a wealth of techniques and standards-based formats. It's ready to use as is, or modify it for your particular needs.
