Our mission at Ignite Achievement Academy is to provide educators with the means to significantly improve the skill achievement of students with academic barriers through the use of a variety of educational materials and curriculums. Every child receives an individualized academic plan that outlines the curriculum that will be used throughout the year for the individual child. This helps teachers deliver the right instruction to every student using the right environment and the correct intensity.
Each set of curricula that covers a given skill comes with a teacher-training manual and a series of student practice packs and homework packs. These materials show you how to:
- Determine the student’s current achievement in different skills.
- Determine the reasons for the student’s skill delays, if any.
- Develop then deliver the student’s customized instructional plan.
- Measure and report progress and adjust the plan as needed.
At Ignite Achievement Academy, our teaching approaches are in a continuous state of improvement during which we research, analyze and adjust our instruction and curricula to facilitate student learning. The outgrowth of this disciplined process is an instructional approach and set of teaching materials that maximize student achievement, which we would like to share with you.
