Schoolwide Reading Fundamentals
Reading Fundamentals has a central mission to develop, expand, and enhance the skills, strategies, and tools students can use to make meaning of and interact with text. Reading Fundamentals Units of Study exist inside a balanced literacy framework. Within this framework, there are opportunities to read to students (mentor texts), to read with students (shared texts), and to have students read independently (books and other texts at their independent reading levels).
Schoolwide Writing Fundamentals
Because writing matters for success in school, the community, and the workplace, Schoolwide's Writing Fundamentals Units of Study have a central mission to improve students' writing by providing explicit instruction that focuses on demonstrating why writers write and how writers communicate their ideas effectively. In order for students to write with power and purpose, the Writing Fundamentals units use quality literature and informational texts to provide authentic examples of various genres and text types.
Scholastic Guided Reading
Guided Reading is an instructional approach that involves a teacher working with a small group of students who demonstrate similar reading behaviors and can all read similar levels of texts. Guided reading gives students the chance to apply reading strategies to new text. The teacher provides support, but the ultimate goal is independent reading.
