Welcome to Ms. Priester's Academic English class for 7th and 8th graders at Pinacate Middle School!
Academic English supports students who are working to improve their reading abilities and/or fluency in the English language. The district provides HMH Read 180 and System 44 curriculum for all students as well as Rosetta Stone for students who are just beginning to learn English. Our class begins with a community circle and then we break into station-rotation blended learning. This means that we participate in a whole-group lesson and then break into three stations: small group instruction with the teacher, independent reading, and student application time. We spend approximately thirty minutes in each station twice a week.
