This class is intended for students with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) with goals targeted at improving reading comprehension.

Level 5 is a group of students currently in the 5th through 7th grade who are reading at a 5th grade level working together towards similar goals.

Reading comprehension strategies include using visuals, answering questions about the reading content, predicting future events in the story, summarizing and retelling stories, identifying parts of the story, and making connections.

This class may be taken multiple times until the IEP goals are met.
