Reviewing English Language Arts

Targeted instruction for reading, writing, and language skills

Students develop the skills needed for success through guided practice and assessment of key skills and concepts.

  • Close reading—questions and tasks elicit sustained attention to the text and require the use of textual evidence, including supporting valid inferences from the text.
  • Complex texts—lessons include Exemplar texts and high-quality, grade-level fiction, poetry, drama, and informational texts.
  • Key Writing types—lessons include characteristics of good writing, argumentative, informational, and literary analysis.
  • Assessment practice—assess students’ understanding of targeted skills and concepts with guided support throughout the lesson, ending with a final independent assessment of all skills taught within the lesson.

Each lesson provides in-depth instruction and practice for targeted skills and concepts.

Lesson Structure

The lessons within the chapters are arranged according to key skills and concepts. A three-step lesson design allows for focused instruction and guided practice.

STEP 1: Review—clear instruction with examples and key terms defined

STEP 2: Check Understanding—a quick check of student understanding

STEP 3: Try It—guided practice using high-quality texts

Students demonstrate understanding of all the skills and concepts studied through multiple assessments—Chapter Reviews, Unit Reviews, and Mastery Test.
