The Collections curriculum begins with reading that draws students in and makes them want to respond. Collections goes on to teach students the skills required to craft those responses—orally and in writing.
Collections' classrooms are current, creative, and challenging.
- Dramatic historical stories, contemporary events, and multi-genre and leveled texts ensure that content is age appropriate and always engaging for students.
- Instruction facilitates meaningful conversations about the texts to promote inquiry and active learning, helping students with annotation, analysis, and creative thinking.
- Online tools help students revise, evaluate, and incorporate text evidence and foster both peer and teacher feedback.
- Performance tasks and mentor texts offer practice and support to hone listening, articulate speaking, and writing skills.
