The Learning Edge provides skills support in math, reading, writing, and study skills. This is accomplished in one of three ways:
- • Skills Remediation (pull-out model) – Students receive one-on-one or small group tutoring, designed to help them strengthen the specific skills needed to consistently succeed in the classroom.
- •Modified Curriculum (pull-out model) – Students begin work in a subject at their current level of mastery and progress at an individualized pace in the Learning Edge classroom. Students exit the program when they are consistently meeting standards and demonstrating grade level achievement.
- •Accommodations (classroom model) – Students continue to work in the classroom, but with expectations modified and/or accommodations in place to encourage success. This may include a reduced workload (some assignments cut back, extended, or eliminated) or the opportunity for students to present what they know in a different way (assignment modified to focus on learning strengths and encourage success). This approach is recommended for students who are within grade level range, but may be struggling with follow-through or distraction/lack of focus in the classroom.
The Learning Edge also provides math, reading, and/or writing enrichment for individuals or small groups of students who meet the criteria for this program in grades 1 through 5. Groups typically meet one or two times a week.
The process of identifying a student for service in The Learning Edge classroom begins with a request from teacher or parent. Mrs. Gibelyou provides formal and/or informal testing to determine specific areas of strength and weakness. From this assessment, a recommendation for service is made, and the classroom teacher and parents are informed of the plan.
Mrs. Gibelyou is available to meet with families upon request. The Learning Edge provides a valuable service to many and is accessible to all. Testing is always available for those families who want to know more about how their children learn, even if skills support is not necessarily needed.
If you have questions about how the Learning Edge can help your child, or you just want to learn more about our services, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Gibelyou. The Learning Edge can give students the “edge” they need to succeed!
