Accelerated Literacy and Language Development

Accelerate Learning and elevate TEKS Writing Skills Development as we prepare students and teachers for the new R/LA STAAR that integrates Revision and Editing Skills into the 3rd-8th STAAR assessments. Enable students to master the Writing Skills TEKS each week as grammar and writing skills are taught. Provide Differentiated Instruction and Scaffolds to lower grade-level lessons enabling all students to engage in on grade-level, rigorous TEKS content.

Accelerate Learning on the New Integrated Reading-Writing STAAR®

Mitigate the risk of falling behind in Domains 1 and 2 and widening the GAP in Domain 3 as we transition to new, more rigorous STAAR Assessments in grades 3-8, English I, and English II. Provide research-based pretests, interim benchmarks, and summative assessments that mimic the new R/LA STAAR and enable teachers and administrators to accurately monitor progress and make timely adjustments during the year. Formative assessments targeting the new revision and editing skills enable teachers to provide targeted interventions to accelerate learning and support student mastery.
