Mariemont City Schools is committed to developing skilled and passionate readers and writers, critical thinkers and effective communicators. Our goal is to build students who can investigate the world, recognize the perspectives of others, take action within their community and thrive in college and careers.
Literacy instruction is based on the learning standards for reading and focuses on student learning outcomes. Our instructional practices are aligned to each of the five pillars of reading…phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. While not a “pillar” of literacy, writing is also an important part of the Mariemont City Schools literacy experience.
Mariemont City Schools is committed to using high-quality, evidence-based literacy instruction to ensure all students become proficient readers. Additionally, our teachers and students are supported by our MTSS Coordinator, Lindsay Oberschlake, and our Literacy Support Specialist, Emily James.
We use the simple view of reading and Scarborough’s Reading Rope to guide our work.
