Purpose

Purpose:  This website was developed to assist all teachers in teaching important Foundational Academic Skills so all students find success. 

 

What We Know

This is what we know:

  • Achievement increases significantly when districts have identified a small number of Foundational Academic Skills and are committed to working consistently on these skills.  

  • Having a common language for teachers and students is important.
  • The Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects are now required for all 6-12 subject area teachers.

  • The Next Generation Assessments will require a higher level of reading and writing across all disciplines.

  • Not all students are successful reading and writing across a variety of content areas.

  • Not all teachers feel comfortable teaching reading and writing in their content areas.  

This resource was created in response to the demand for high quality literacy instructional tools to assist teachers and students in their literacy motivation, engagement and achievement.
