Welcome to Responsive Instruction (RI) at Algonkian Elementary
The 2013-2014 school year will be Algonkian's fifth year of implementing Responsive Instruction (RI) in the area of reading. We are proud that our RI program includes grades 1-5 . Algonkian is one of seven schools within the county now implementing this proactive, problem solving approach.
