The English language arts adoption committee has been meeting regularly since October, 2019 to review potential curriculum to support K-8 students. This process involves representatives from all schools an excellent opportunity to research and evaluate potential English language arts programs for the 2020-21 school year. After many hours of work, reflection and deliberation, the recommendations are:
The recommended programs systematically integrate the four strands: reading, writing, listening and speaking, and language. Additionally, each program provides methods and materials for differentiating instruction for students with disabilities, gifted, and ELL subgroups, while ensuring that all students still encounter grade-level text during the core block of instruction. Finally, the digital engagement component supports our district-wide technology initiatives.
