Troy High School spreading its wings
TROY HIGH School has a history of success in the arts and in technical and vocational studies. Our students continue, however, to be challenged in literacy skills. We have, therefore, devised an initiative to support literacy development in our school by reaching into the community and providing support to children even before they attain highschool age. This is accomplished through the Community Literacy Outreach Centre (CLOC).
The CLOC has been created in partnership with Troy Primary School to give special support to groups of grades two and four students who are in greatest need of literacy support.
Enrolment is 13 boys and seven girls of grades two and four. Reading levels range from pre-primer to grade two. Instructional tools include digital literacy aids and manipulatives. After a six-month period, 60 per cent (13/20) of the learners improved in reading by one to four grade levels: One grade level – (9/20) = 45 per cent
Two grade levels – (1/20) = five per cent
Three grade levels = (1/20) = five per cent
Four grade levels – (1/20) = five per cent
The other 40 per cent (8/20) exhibited incremental progress in letter and word recognition.
