SAILS English is a modified class for students receiving special education services who struggle with reading and writing skills. This course takes the place of general education English. This is a required class and must be passed in order to graduate. The Essential Standards that are required in general education English will be covered but they will be modified to suit the special education student. Literature sources include selections from literature books, audio works and limited movie scenes. Discretion will be used in making appropriate and relevant selections. Students will be working on improving reading, spelling, vocabulary, writing, and research skills.  Students will work towards independent learning skills. Homework will be kept to a minimum as long as in class time is used well.
