Mrs. Gigi Lundgren
As the reading specialist at St. Ignatius my role is to support the classroom teachers in grades 1, 2, and 3 in the area of literacy. This includes reading, (especially for comprehension and vocabulary) phonemic awareness, spelling, and writing composition.
I will be co-teaching with the classroom teacher. The beauty of the co-teaching model is that we (teachers) work collaboratively to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of all students in order for them to meet the expectations of the Common Core State Standards.
Co-teaching usually takes place in the general education classroom. Both teachers are actively engaged in teaching and assisting students at all levels. Our goal is to help students progress meaningfully in their learning so it becomes a part of all they do,now and in the future. The various strategies we use in the classroom are in alignment withe the Common Core State Standards.
