Language and Literacy

Language and Literacy

We believe that language and literacy are intricately linked to success in all subject areas. Educators deserve access to high quality learning opportunities that directly relate to their classrooms. We believe that all students are capable of developing the language and literacy necessary to be college and career ready when they have effective instruction. Our team is ready to provide customized support to meet the needs of your local site or district.

The Standards set requirements not only for English Language Arts (ELA) but also for literacy in history/social studies, science, and technical subjects. Just as students must learn to read, write, speak, listen, and use language effectively in a variety of content areas, so too must the Standards specify the literacy skills and understandings required for college and career readiness in multiple disciplines.
