Welcome to the webpage of Mrs. Foster's Class. In this class we work together to help students achieve their academic goals, personal goals and transition / work goals. Students work to strengthen study skills and skills necessary to be successful in life. The Resource Room at Russell High School is designed to develop, strengthen, and improve skills for positive academic performance and achievement. Through content area course work, pre- and post- teaching, cognitive learning strategies are taught which focus on comprehension and memory skills, organizational and study skills, test taking, and the enhancements of written expression. Self-advocacy skills and transitional planning are also part of the instructional program. Students' progress is monitored and reviewed throughout the year according to their IEPs (Individual Educational Plans). Resource Room is not a study hall.
