Our school district believes that if we focus on culture, data and performance — with a lens on literacy — that we will see success.
Increasing the vocabulary of students builds their academic confidence and helps them create grit and perseverance.
The teachers use it in every content area on a regular basis which allows for conversations around cross-curricular instruction.
Once they realized they can use it across content and that it was more about literacy than about a particular content area, they got on board.
