Union School District has combined multiple, research-based resources to create a unique English Language Arts/English Language Development instructional framework to match our students and teachers needs.
This combination of resources ensures high-quality English Language Instruction will be delivered to meet the needs of each and every student. Based on Lucy Calkin's Writers Units of Study, students in grades TK-8 will receive instruction based on strategies that spiral throughout the grade levels and include core components of: Guided Reading, Text Study, Literature Discussion, EduProtocols, Word Study and Writer's Workshop.
An informational video describing our new framework is available below.
