Title I Teacher Assistants

  • Title I teacher assistants in the Math and English Department are utilized in the tutoring centers and classrooms. In the Reading Tutoring Center (R.T.C.), tutors specifically provide the Reading Plus program, a web-based, reading intervention system, to Title I students.  This program is designed to help students accelerate reading skills to eventually read at a college-ready level.  Additionally, the R.T.C. provides a supportive environment in which students may complete homework, study for tests, and receive literacy support across the curriculum.  Classroom teacher assistants (T.A.’s) support students in all targeted courses. T.A.’s allow for differentiated instruction by providing small group and individual reinforcement. They also emphasize reading comprehension strategies, writing skills, and organizational methods to ensure the overall academic success of Title I students.
