P.S. 48 Joseph R. Drake School children are learning from an enriched primary program which allows students the time they need to be successful. Their communication Arts Program embraces a multifaceted balanced approach to reading. Teachers make every effort to ensure that all students can read by the 3rd grade. Students become readers, writers and mathematicians responsible for their own learning. Through accepting ownership of their academic responsibilities they are encouraged to take pride in their work. P.S. 48 children begin to recognize the inseparable relationships among reading, writing, listening and speaking. They learn to read for enjoyment and information, express their own thoughts verbally and in written form, and ask relevant questions. Teachers are expected to make decisions on a wide range of problems. Some decisions are strictly routine, while others are somewhat more complex; some are extremely important and some may result from lesser concerns.
