Engaging, Real-world Texts

We build around texts that students love to read and teachers love to teach. Knowing that engaged readers become better readers, we start with texts that excite learners.As students tackle compelling topics, we build compassionate, thoughtful citizens while deepening learner engagement.

Science & Social Studies Integrated Throughout

We build substantive content knowledge. Units revolve around science and social studies topics. Students simultaneously acquire reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills while developing knowledge about the words and the world.

English-language and Multi-language Learners

Our curriculum includes conscious, research-based supports for ELLs and MLLs, with lesson-level guidance, frequent ‘Language Dives’ to unpack the structure and meaning of compelling sentences, and ‘Conversation Cues’ to promote equitable discussions.

The curriculum has not only engaged our students but also has had a positive impact on increasing our teacher’s instructional capacity and skill. Our students have become willing to take risks with their learning and able to engage in critical thinking.
