In reading and English Language Arts, our college and career ready solutions across K –12 bring unmatched rigor, embodying the standards’ emphasis on developing knowledge through coherently structured units of instruction focused on a high percentage of content-rich, nonfiction texts. Through regular practice with complex text and rich, academic vocabulary instruction, our solutions prepare students to draw evidence and knowledge from the texts. In full coherence with the standards, these solutions intentionally focus on the connection between text comprehension and knowledge acquisition. Students are asked not only to analyze and synthesize sources, but to use the evidence drawn from sources to support analysis, reflection, or research in writing.
