The mission of Icahn Charter Schools is to use the Core Knowledge curriculum, developed by E.D. Hirsch, to provide students with a rigorous academic program offered in an extended day/year setting. Students will graduate armed with the skills and knowledge to participate successfully in the most rigorous academic environments, and will have a sense of personal and community responsibility.
READING DAILY IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS!!
Icahn Charter School 1 students are continuing to read 30 minutes in school and 30 minutes at home. This quantity practice targets are set, monitored, and rewarded to ensuring every student adopts the independent reading routines of academic success.
Students are leveled based on what readers need to know and be able to do at each of the five developmental stages of reading acquisition.
Daily practice at home is to engage parents in their child’s learning, and ensures that every student adopts the independent reading routines of academically successful learners.

Icahn 1 loves 100 Book Challenge! - Mrs. Byrne
LightSail is a program we have been using in sixth and seventh grade ELA classes to increase student achievement in reading. The LightSail program allows students to choose from a wide variety of genres, written to correspond with their reading levels while at the same time increasing their comprehension.
Texts are arranged according to lexile level, and titles are high interest and chosen for grade level appropriateness. In-text questions challenge students as they read and encourage a deep engagement with the text. As a result, lexile levels improve and update through embedded formative assessments which are available for teachers to analyze and reflect upon to inform their instruction.
The students enjoy LightSail, especially the ability to choose from a variety of titles. They say it is a "relaxing" time, where they can experience many different kinds of literature. - Ms. Aldebot
Come prepared for the new school year!

Icahn Charter School 1 teachers participated in a school-wide initiative introducing Learning Targets as an instructional tool to enhance student learning and achievement. Unlike instructional objectives, derived from content standards, written in teacher language, and used to guide teaching during a lesson, learning targets frame a lesson from the student point of view. A learning target helps students grasp the lesson's purpose--why it is crucial to learn this information and exposes students to the Common Core State Standards. Learning Targets are written in a student friendly way and posted as an “I Can..” statement. Each month, we will expand on our Learning Targets implementation.
