Welcome to Responsive Instruction (RI) at Algonkian Elementary
The 2012-2013 school year will be Algonkian's fourth year of implementing Responsive Instruction (RI) in the area of reading. We are proud to expand our RI program to included grades four and five for the second year. Algonkian is one of seven schools within the county now implementing this proactive, problem solving approach.
