Most of these units have been developed through a partnership with Great Minds. A Washington, D.C. based non-profit. Our teachers have been working on these units for the past two years, and we will have four or five units in place at each grade level by the end of the 2016-17 school year. They incorporate a great variety of fiction and non-fiction texts that have been carefully chosen to ensure that our students are challenged and exposed to a wide range of rich reading material. These units are a part of our balanced literacy approach which includes the teaching of foundational reading skills, and writing. You can read more about these two areas through links to the left.
