ELA - New Curriculum!
Last year, many classes across the district piloted two ELA programs:
- During the first trimester, we piloted a program called "HMH: Into Reading".
- During the second trimester, we piloted a program called "Pearson: My View".
- During the third trimester, we chose to move forward with "Pearson: My View".
Luckily, I was part of the pilot group last year. At the start of the summer, the Antioch Board of Education approved the purchase of Pearson: My View. Since purchasing, the program has changed names and is now refferred to as Savvas: My View. Savvas will be used in all Kindergarten - 5th Grade classrooms in the district.
Each Unit is 6 weeks long, leaving the 6th week as problem-based learning opportunity. Each of the first five weeks in a unit, Savvas follows a generic routine:
Day 1: Build Background Knowledge
Day 2: Introduce story of the week
Day 3: Skill #1
Day 4: Skill #2
Day 5: Evaluate student progress
