• English/Language Arts

    Our ELA curriculum, ReadyGEN, is an integrated literacy program with a balanced literacy approach. The curriculum encompasses:

    • Trade books/Text collection: students engage in multiple close readings/discussions of full-length authentic literary and informational texts
    • Sleuth: during small group, students engage in multiple short readings/discussions of shorter pieces of authentic texts to sharpen their close reading skills; they look for clues, ask questions, make their case and prove it!
    • Independent reading: students select books and practice reading independently with "just right" text
