The Resource Room program provides regularly scheduled supplemental instruction for middle school and high school students needing curricular support. These services include remedial instruction in basic skills (reading, spelling, math), study and organizational skills, test taking, reading comprehension, and memory strategies. Students may be referred for supplemental instruction by parents, the guidance office, classroom teachers, ELL teachers, or Discovery Program staff. Typically, students will attend the resource room during their study halls. The number of meeting times per week will be determined based on student need and availability of the Resource Room teacher.
How Can My Student Benefit?
A student who is struggling in one subject or several can benefit from finding a learning style (visual, kinesthetic, auditory) that best fits their individual need. This can be determined through a simple learning style test which helps them recognize how they retain information best. Once this has been determined, relevant strategies (color-coding, lists, role-playing) are used during resource time to assist the student in developing habits that support their personal learning style.
