Using small group instruction, Barrack Hebrew Academy's Resource team provides a supportive learning environment for those students who want and need learning support beyond the classroom. Instruction provided varies according to the needs of the individual student. Instruction may include study skills, organizational skills, as well as general curriculum support. The ultimate goal is to have each student develop skills and strategies that will enable him or her to become an independent learner.
Resource teachers work closely with faculty, administration, parents and community professionals on a regular basis. At the beginning of the school year or at the time of entry into the program, a student support memo is developed and shared with faculty to determine appropriate expectations and monitor a student's progress on a regular basis.
In addition, our Resource staff is responsible for coordinating the needs of those students who receive extended time, as well as thoses students who participate in a somewhat modified program in subjects which are heterogeneously grouped.
