The English language arts and math sessions will be condensed to one session instead of two, the number of test units will decrease to six or seven from eight or nine, and testing time will be reduced for most students by 90 minutes.

|New Writing and Grammar Program for Students|
Students are being asked to write more now than ever before - in all grade levels and in all content areas. To best prepare D70 students for future writing tasks, D70 has adopted Strategies for Writers K-5 by Zaner-Bloser as our new writing program. Strategies for Writers is a comprehensive writing and grammar solution introducing the six traits of writing at every step of the writing process to compose opinions, informative/ explanatory essays, and narrative compositions.
Students will write routinely for a range of tasks, purposes, and audiences, learn to analyze writing models by reading closely, write to multiple sources using technology, and master grammar and conventions of standard written English. Pre- and post-tests ensure growth and inform differentiated instruction. Students will be engaged in online grammar games, proofreading activities, and composition writing both in the classroom and at home.
This is an exciting time for writing in D70 and we encourage all parents to talk with your child's classroom teacher to learn more about Strategies for Writers.
