|Family Literacy Workshop for ASE Families!|
Albuquerque School of Excellence will start a series of Family Literacy Workshop for you.
What is family literacy?
Family literacy is a term used to describe parents and children - or more broadly - adults and children - learning together.Family Literacy programs are driven by comprehensive, holistic approaches to education in which parents and children learn and grow together. Family Literacy programs address the literacy strengths and needs of the family/community while promoting adults' involvement in children's education, recognizing adults as a powerful influence on children's academic success. Family literacy programs also recognize the reciprocal nature of parent-child relationships. Programs provide both parent-initiated and child-initiated activities to support development of those relationships and to increase the motivation to learn for both parent and child.
Below you will see the dates. It will be held on Tuesdays at 5:30 pm. We will be providing pizza and drinks for each workshop. Parents will be given a certificate for each workshop. Mrs. Graybeal will be conducting following workshops;

Assessment and Learning in Knowledge Spaces is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course. ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics she is most ready to learn. As a student works through a course, ALEKS periodically reassesses the student to ensure that topics learned are also retained. ALEKS courses are very complete in their topic coverage and ALEKS avoids multiple-choice questions. A student who shows a high level of mastery of an ALEKS course will be successful in the actual course she is taking.
ALEKS also provides the advantages of one-on-one instruction, 24/7, from virtually any Web-based computer for a fraction of the cost of a human tutor.

|Core Knowledge Language Arts Curriculum |
Albuquerque School of Excellence uses Core Knowledge Language Art Curriculum in grades 1-5. Core Knowledge’s instructional materials are designed to ensure that all students acquire the broad knowledge and skills needed to become responsible, productive citizens. While much of the education arena focuses on all students becoming college and career ready, Core Knowledge focuses on college, career, and citizenship. In the 21st century, being college and career ready means being ready to compete with people from around the world. It requires expertise in one’s chosen field—and the strong, broad foundation Core Knowledge provides in the early grades enables students to figure out which subjects they want to delve into in high school and beyond. Being citizenship ready means being able to communicate with people around the world. Citizenship requires the ability to speak with and listen to people all across the United States, to understand the perspectives of people around the world, to read the local paper or the New York Times, to write out one’s platform and run for office. By basing its materials on core content and core values, Core Knowledge puts students on the path to effectively competing and communicating.
