NOTE: The Flex Curriculum will retire and be removed from our website on August 1st, 2021. Please see our FAQs for more information.

The following recommendations were developed for implementation of the EL Education Grades K-8 Language Arts Curriculum for the 2021-2021 school year only.

Modules Selected for 2020/2021 School Year with Rationale

To select the three modules to use in the 2020/2021 year, the following criteria were prioritized:

  • Maintaining diversity across a grade level and grade band considering authors, characters, and the stories being told
  • Ensuring content is appropriate for students in a fully remote environment where there might be less support and guidance from a teacher. If in a full-time classroom environment where students can be fully supported by the teacher in the way the module was intended, some of the modules selected to be omitted for 2020/2021 may be important to teach. In this situation, consider selecting a different module to remove. Note the * next to these modules in the list below.  
  • Minimizing impact in terms of standards
