Here are sample units our students will learn this program:

 II.  A NEW EFFECTIVE APPROACH IN TEACHING COMMON CORE READING 

  Our new English Language Arts program delivers a deep study of each literature and informational reading standards with highly engaging, complex texts from a wide range of genres.   To help your child succeed in

Common Core Reading in the upcoming school year, our teaching strategies for reading this summer based on the Read, Think, Talk, Write Model.

 READ:  Students read selections multiple times for different purposes.  The first read focuses on reading to determine what the text says.  In subsequent reads, students analyze and evaluate the text for deeper meaning and to develop critical -thinking skills.

 THINK:   During the THINK stage of daily instruction, students unpack the text, using a graphic organizer to analyze the text structure and evidence.   

 TALK:   Through meaningful activities, students interact with their peers to discuss the text, clarify their thinking, and, thereby continue to deepen their understanding of the text.

 WRITE:   Each day's instructions wraps up with a writing activity.  Through short and-extended-response writing prompts, students demonstrate their understanding of the text and learning target.
