Our goals are to develop our students’ identities as readers and writers. We also want to instill a lifelong passion for reading and writing in our students.
We will achieve our goals by following the Reading and Writing Workshop curriculum, which is aligned to the US Common Core standards. As readers, students will grow in their independent reading practices and have opportunities to participate in reading partnerships and book clubs for both fiction and nonfiction texts. As writers, students will learn and work through the steps of the writing process, practicing narrative, informational, and argumentative writing. Learning and assessments will be authentic in nature and focused on the following areas: Reading, Writing, Speaking/ Listening, and Language Usage.
