HillRAP (Reading Achievement Program)

HillRAP students are taught using a multisensory, systematic approach to reading. Students learn letter/sound "patterns" and the "rules of language" via phonological awareness and phonics instruction, which gives students the tools they need to decode previously unknown words. Instructional materials target specific phonetic patterns taught at each skill level, as well as vocabulary and reading comprehension. Students are pre-assessed at the beginning of tutoring so that instructors can target specific skills for each student. Ongoing assessment continues throughout all HillRAP sessions, and updates are provided regularly. Written progress reports are provided during parent conferences, which are held the final week of each student’s HillRAP session. Each HillRAP class has a maximum enrollment of 4 students with a minimum requirement of 2 students for the class to be held.

 HillWrite

HillWrite offers individualized attention to students who are experiencing written language difficulties. HillWrite students are taught using a multisensory, systematic approach to written language. They learn letter/sound "patterns" and the "rules of language", which gives students the tools they need to “chunk” and spell unknown words. Students learn how to brainstorm, use graphic organizers, compose a rough draft, edit, revise, and publish compositions. Students are pre-assessed at the beginning of tutoring so that instructors can target specific skills for each student. Ongoing daily assessment continues throughout HillWrite sessions, and updates are provided regularly. Written progress reports are provided during parent conferences, which are held the final week of each student’s HillWrite session.   Each HillWrite class has a maximum enrollment of 4 students with a minimum requirement of 2 students for the class to be held.

 HillMath

HillMath students are taught using a multisensory, systematic approach to mathematics instruction. Students learn by utilizing manipulatives to develop understanding of basic “concrete” math concepts.  Instructors scaffold lessons on these basic skills until students have mastered them, and can understand higher level “abstract” math concepts. Students learn how to approach and solve numerous types of word problems. Students are pre-assessed at the beginning of tutoring so that instructors can target specific skills for each student. Ongoing daily assessment continues throughout all HillMath sessions, and updates are provided regularly.  Each HillMath class has a maximum enrollment of 4 students with a minimum requirement of 2 students for the class to be held.

 Study Skills

The Study Skills class introduces students to proven strategies that support increased success with the four executive function domains: preparedness, initiative, focus, and specific learning skills. As each strategy is introduced, students learn and practice the skill, creating a reference book of all the strategies and tips accumulated throughout the sessions. Although individual student needs are not evaluated and addressed in this class, students can get support to apply each strategy to their own school work. Each Study Skills class has a maximum enrollment of 8 students with a minimum requirement of 3 students for the class to be held.

 

Session 1: Grades Rising 6-8 | July 10-14 | 10am - 11:30am | The Hill Center
