Resource Room

SONY DSCThe resource room strategy is usually utilized for students with learning problems who are able to function in the regular classroom. A student will come to the resource center for remediation of a diagnosed difficulty. The goal of the resource room is to make each student able to work independently at grade level. The resource room teacher will employ techniques that are necessary to achieve this goal through individualization, remediation, and multi-sensory presentation of material. A child’s success is measured by the goals reached and maintained for each individual learning style. The resource room teacher forges a bond with the mainstream teacher to help maximize potential for each student. This includes the resource room teacher attending mainstreamed classes with the student to help provide additional instruction and support. A very strong bond is formed with each individual student to help foster learning in the classroom and in the resource room. The resource room teacher may also work directly in the classroom when it is appropriate to do so.
