Title I Programs at Hollin Meadows
Literacy Collaborative™: Literacy Collaborative™ is a professional development model designed to support literacy instruction in grades K-6. A school-based literacy coordinator works with students, teaches courses, and coaches teachers to help them implement reading and writing instruction. The literacy coordinator helps teachers refine their instruction to meet the literacy needs of all students.
Reading Recovery®: is a short-term, early intervention program. It is designed for first grade children who are not learning to read and write as quickly as their peers. Children in Reading Recovery receive daily lessons from a specially trained teacher for approximately 12-20 weeks. The instruction is in addition to classroom reading and writing instruction.
SUM:The purpose of the Step Up Mathematics (SUM) program is to increase the mathematics achievement of students in Title I schools. Title I SUM teachers work with classroom teachers to assess student learning and to plan instruction that enables students to understand mathematical concepts, apply problem solving strategies, and develop computational skills. SUM teachers also provide ongoing professional learning for teachers in their schools. They work in classrooms as well as with small groups of students. Instruction is based upon the FCPS Program of Studies (POS), the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL), and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Standards.
