Welcome to Ms. Hazelwood's Study Skills Page!
I would like to welcome you to the Study Skills page. I look forward to a wonderful school year! The focus of the Study Skills class this year will be to enhance the skills that the students will learn in their Language Arts class as well as the implementation of Reading Plus. This year the students will be using a computer-based reading program to help increase reading comprehension and reading levels. By learning new skills along with the enrichment of already acquired skills, students will have a more rewarding educational experience at Main Street Academy. With the proper strategies, students will be more confident which leads to classroom success and an overall more rewarding educational experience.
The Common Core State Standards require that students encounter, evaluate, and synthesize ever-increasing levels of text complexity. The standards suggest determining text complexity levels by examining three equally important text elements: Quantitative, Qualitative, and Reading and Task dimensions. Reading Plus selections have been rigorously crafted to adhere to, or surpass, CCSS requirements for all three dimensions of text complexity.
