DEVELOPING CORE LITERACY PROFICIENCIES

DEVELOPING CORE LITERACY PROFICIENCIES

Help students acquire the skills needed to become independent, creative, and critical thinkers with integrated, grade-specific sets of ELA/Literacy units. The programs provide student-centered instruction on a set of core literacy proficiencies:
  • Reading closely for textual details
  • Making evidence-based claims in general, then specifically about literary works and techniques
  • Researching to deepen understanding
  • Building reasoned arguments
Student workbooks for each grade contain five units that include a set of short texts with challenging vocabulary words in bold, handouts, checklists, graphic organizers, and culminating writing tasks and discussion questions. Teacher editions add instructional sequences, teacher notes, assessments, rubrics, and graphic organizers designed to support students with a diversity of educational experiences and needs. The integrated assessment system allows for the coherent evaluation of students' literacy development over the course of the year and vertically across grade levels.
