English Literacy

Heads Up Learning offers two kinds of English Literacy classes. In small group settings, these lessons are tailored to the unique needs of each group, and scaffold peer collaboration. One-on-one, the same lessons are further differentiated to provide learning that matches your learner’s pace. 

English Literacy classes for Anglophones follow grade-level literacy standards while focusing on Heads Up curricular units of citizenship, environmentalism, community activism, and human-tech relationships. Anglophone students hone their reading, writing, and speaking skills and gain new academic insights across thematic content.

English Literacy classes for Francophones are written to meet the needs of early, intermediate, and advanced language learners. Every student comes at a different stage of his or her language acquistion. Through the study of the same thematic content, all language learners are given the tools they need to read, write, and converse thoughtfully in their second language.

“Laura’s curriculum has evolved throughout the year to follow the interests of the students and their holistic development. She skillfully works to problem solve with the best interest of her students always in mind. Aside from her teaching skills, Laura is a wonderful and caring human being. My son has thoroughly enjoyed his year and feels respected, listened to, and properly challenged. She cares deeply for the students and works hard to foster a sense of community. As a parent, I feel I have a partner in my son’s education.”
