English Language Arts Instructor's Page
Florence School District One has a committed focus on the successful literacy experiences and opportunities for all students. Instruction in literacy skills is grounded in the South Carolina College and Career Standards which are expectations of student achievement through instruction. FSD1 literacy framework is Balanced Literacy. This integrated approach is based on research-based practices and strategies that are implemented at all grade levels and in all content areas.
Currently our students are assessed annually in English, reading, and writing in grades 3-8 with a state approved assessment tool. Students enrolled in English 1 are assessed with an End of Course examination that counts for 20% of their final grade. High School students are also assessed with the state-approved ACT assessment.
