Our Expert Literacy Approach
impacts every academic
Hicks Techniques literacy content deepens a learner’s reading ability through the satisfactory execution of word study and phonics. When students are taught letters and sounds in addition to the foundational mechanics of the English language, they are able to fluently read a wide range of text. This frees the learner’s mental capacity to deeply comprehend the content which they read. In addition to providing word study and phonics instruction, Hicks Techniques also provides interim assessments in order to identify students’ strengths and areas for growth. When teachers are able to identify a student’s exact needs and provide targeted instruction, students soundly excel – eagerly ready to receive more advanced material.
Complete Academic Success
Reading impacts every academic discipline! If students struggle in reading, they cannot independently access the written components of any school subject – science, math, and history to name a few. And, the opposite is also true. If students are proficient readers, they are more likely to succeed in all other academic subjects.
