SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING


Social-emotional learning (SEL) is the process of developing the self-awareness, 

self-control, and interpersonal skills that are vital for school, work, and life success. SPAS's counseling and SEL program is run by a certified counselor and helps build a foundation that supports students’ success both personally and academically.


ENGLISH LANGUAGE SUPPORT PROGRAM 

Push In/Break Out Teacher

  • English as a tool for all subjects
  • Accessing English outside of traditional English lessons
  • After-school program support
  • Not tutoring or homework help - this program is aimed to train students to access fluency in their daily and weekly work
  • Lifelong English skills, not just contextual


      STEP (Secondary Tiered English Program)

      

      2023-2024 Goals: STEP aims to support students in meaningful English content that they often see across their content classes. 

      STEP also looks closely into the common English-based writing or academic skills that are crucial to the success of an international
      student. 


      STEP works by targeting language in as many areas of education as possible. 


      In class : Language support is facilitated by teacher support where content teachers work closely with ELL teachers in finding the 
      right support tools for their language learners to access their subject content. 

      Students can also be supported by a push-in or pull-out system as best fits their needs.


      ELD : Students receive protected time during school hours to develop their foundational English skills


      Academic Workshop : A structured ASA that facilitates academic writing skills, focusing on writing styles that students will use in
      all areas of their schooling. An emphasis is placed on informative writing stuctures and the ability to cite evidence to support reasoning.
