What's New In Language Arts

Recent focus on enhanced alignment with Illinois Reading Standards included field testing of different reading programs.  Field testing by elementary school teachers at each grade level at each school will continue for some of the teachers throughout the remainder of the school year.  The end goal is to continue focused discussions to reach consensus on primary language arts materials that will develop students into confident and proficient readers.
