English Language Arts Instructor's Page
Florence 1 Schools has a committed focus on 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.
