We believe that students read, write, speak, and listen in order to make sense of the world. Because of this belief, our literacy program does not just take place in a ELA classroom. Rather, we seek to improve literacy in every classroom - teaching our students to read like a mathematician, write like a scientist, and to understand comprehend the stories told in a history class.

All students have a natural curiosity about the world and our job is to help them broaden that curiosity by providing real-world problems to explore and big ideas to grapple with.

Bookends in a library spell read.

When students engage daily in these activities, they develop habits of mind that create voracious readers, prolific writers, independent thinkers, and lifelong learners.

We want our students to continue to learn far beyond their school years, which is why every day our students will read, write, and learn with a purpose every day.

Our students learn how to build knowledge out of words and the world through reading. They learn how to make meaning from complex text. They also learn how to write for an audience using evidence to develop effective arguments. To accomplish this, we have identified five key areas that students will see growth in: research, complex text, writing, presentation, and collaboration.


Students will be introduced to citations and how to check for reliable sources. They will also learn how to use quotes, paraphrasing, and avoid plagiarism when they write.

Complex Text

Students will learn how to use evidence from text to answer questions, how to understand an author's use of words creates meaning and purpose, and how to analyze and examine complex text through multiple lenses.


Students will learn to respond to literature in multiple modes by writing pieces in a set time period.


Students will learn to present claims using facts, descriptions, and details when called on in class to answer questions, when responding to their teacher or peers, and when asked to present information to an audience.


Students will learn to work in a variety of collaborative situations and discussions, including pairs, small groups, or with the whole class.
