Language Arts Curriculum Modules:
“It’s deeper, and a lot more rigorous, than what they’ve been used to. But my kids have really been doing well, and I feel like a better teacher when I’m doing it.”
Josel Williams, 3rd grade teacher School 8, Rochester, NY
“We're leaving the workshop seeing the possibility of brilliance in every student in every school, every day.”
Participant Professional Development Session

What makes our ELA curriculum different?

  • It’s written by teachers for teachers.

    Former and current teachers in public schools across the country joined together in this work. It's not the product of a for-profit publishing company.

  • It’s a comprehensive full year.

    Our curriculum is written on the daily lesson level and provides a full school year of instruction, assessment, and differentiated supports to address all of the Language Arts standards.

  • It’s free and available online.

    Our curriculum is an open educational resource that can be accessed by any educator in the country.

  • It challenges and engages all students.

    We included supports for students not meeting grade-level standards, extensions for students ready for more challenge, and built in supports for English language learners.

How is our curriculum structured?

  • K-2 Language Arts Curriculum

    Each module in grades K-2 is comprised of two one-hour blocks of content-based literacy (Module Lessons and K-2 Labs) and a third hour of structured phonics (K-2 Reading Foundations Skills Block). Together, these three hours of curriculum teach and formally assess all strands of the Language Arts standards for each grade level.

  • K-2 Reading Foundations Skills Block

    The K-2 Skills Block uses a structured phonics approach, grounded in the Phase Theory of Dr. Linead Ehru, which describes behaviors related to the types of letter-sound connections students are able to make as they learn to read and write.

  • 3-5 Language Arts Curriculum

    Each module in grades 3-5 is comprised of two one-hour blocks of content-based literacy instruction (Module Lessons and Additional Language and Literacy Block). Together, these two hours of curriculum teach and formally assess all strands of the Language Arts standards for each grade level.
