Activity Based Learning

Our teaching is activity-based. Skills are formed through a thorough, systematic progression that builds confidence through a series of manageable challenges. ARC teaching is based on the Reading Revolution™ method, a phonic, literature-based program which engages every  learning pathway through MULTI-SENSORY ACTIVITIES. These include: physical activities such as treasure hunts and races, interactive games, songs, manipulatives, and many other language opportunities.
The resulting program is fun and effective —
especially for the most challenged learners!
