Learning Focus for 2012-2013
Grant Middle School's instructional focus for 2012-13 will continue to be reading comprehension. It is very important to have the ability to read, but it is certainly more important to have the ability to understand, make connections, and apply passages from a variety of written work. Reading comprehension strategies and techniques will be taught in all subject areas every day, and supports will be provided for students to master these skills.
