Scaffolding the path to success by nurturing the love of language
Hope Academy’s Language Arts department is dedicated to instilling and nurturing a desire to learn. Our daily language arts lessons provide students with the essential tools that they need for reading and writing.
Our teachers utilize the Slingerland adaptation of the Orton-Gillingham approach to language arts instruction. This research-based, multi-sensory teaching approach simultaneously uses three channels of learning: auditory, visual and kinesthetic-motor. The approach teaches to the intellect and provides a language learning experience that is complete, thorough and integrated.
It is a supportive instructional program that encourages academic competence, effective work habits and self-discipline.
Each language arts lesson is designed to promote student success through explicit, structured, sequential and multi-sensory instruction. The purpose is to build a solid foundation in speaking, reading, spelling and writing.
