Students build capacity to read, think, talk, and write about complex texts—while developing key social-emotional learning skills.
Knowing that engaged readers become better readers, we start with texts that excite learners.
Teachers are supported in helping all learners to engage grade-level complex texts—and our proven strategies help all learners to access those texts.
As students tackle compelling topics, we build compassionate, thoughtful citizens while deepening learner engagement.
Units revolve around STEM and social studies topics. Students simultaneously acquire reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills while developing knowledge about the words and the world.
Routinely -embedded, structured formative assessments are paired with scaffolded differentiation guidance based on specific assessment outcomes. Our use of high stakes testing formats is paired with a culminating real-world performance task.
Our curriculum includes conscious, research-based supports for English language learners, with lesson-level guidance, frequent ‘Language Dives’ to unpack the structure and meaning of compelling sentences, and ‘Conversation Cues’ to promote equitable discussions. Rebecca Blum-Martinez of the University of New Mexico guides our pioneering approach.
Authored by renowned leader EL Education, our programs use state standards as a foundation. All curricula receive quality reviews against acclaimed alignment rubrics (IMET, EQuIP), conducted by leading experts.
Curriculum authors EL Education initially created the groundbreaking curriculum for New York State’s EngageNY, to unprecedented national response. These materials build on that foundation, adding ELL scaffolds, fresh new design, K–2 expansion, and more.
We tailor professional learning and support recommendations to each district’s schedule, staffing, and delivery needs. In addition to our curriculum-embedded professional learning content, we offer:
We meet you where you are on the digital continuum:
EL Education created the groundbreaking ELA curriculum (3–5) to an enthusiastic response by the K–12 community: 8M+ downloads and counting. The authoring team tapped rich classroom insights in developing this newly-enhanced version of 3–5 materials, while expanding to the K–2 grade band.
These programs—which are currently being finalized through pilots in 36 classrooms—will be published as openly licensed curricula in Summer 2017.
We gladly provide samples of the materials to districts considering ELA programs for the ‘17–18 school year.
