Our language arts curriculum is focused on propagating a love of language. Teachers prioritize reading, writing, and communication skills across all subject areas and every classroom is language and literacy rich with an emphasis on including diverse and multicultural stories that provide windows and mirrors for students.
To cultivate strong writers and communicators, our teachers utilize the Lucy Calkins Reading and Writing Workshop curriculum (guided by research and aligned with the Common Core Standards). Students learn agency and independence in their reading and writing through this approach which allows for seamless differentiation and elevates student voice. Instruction is provided responsively in small groups and individual conferences with an emphasis on the writing process and reading both for pleasure and to gain knowledge.
