Teach reading using a book-based modular curriculum from a variety of outstanding texts.
The Reading Reconsidered Curriculum is a knowledge driven curriculum, consisting of carefully planned daily lessons that are challenging, engaging, and writing intensive. The curriculum is book based and modular, meaning that a school or a teacher can choose from a variety of outstanding texts at a given grade level to assemble their own scope and sequence for the year.
Within each unit, we identify key vocabulary to support plot comprehension and depth of word knowledge as well as technical vocabulary, like juxtaposition and motif, to support student analysis of literature.
We follow reading with developmental, formative, and summative writing prompts ensuring students get support in sentence craft, idea formation and well-developed arguments about a text.
