READING

The Lincoln-Way Reading Department is dedicated to improving student achievement by providing students with increased opportunities for reading narrative and expository text. The Reading curriculum emphasizes the acquisition of multiple strategies and skills to improve literal and inferential comprehension. It also focuses on vocabulary development through Latin and Greek Roots and context clues. It is one of our goals for students to improve their performance on high-stakes standardized tests. Finally, it is our hope and intention that students will develop lifelong reading habits.
