Literacy in Berwyn South School District 100

In Berwyn South 100, we believe in Balanced Literacy.  Our lessons are built off the standards, driven by assessments, and individualized for student needs.  The components in the puzzle below are all options to utilize to increase success in our goal for students to achieve independence on standards level work in our classrooms.  

For more information on each piece, view this presentation or ask a literacy coach.

Below you will find Curriculum materials for each grade, based on the Common Core Standards.  We utilize Lucy Calkins Units of Study as our primary resource, but we use the standards as our guide.  The Units of Study can be moved around in different orders, and alternate texts and topics may be taught as long as they are standards aligned.

Here you will find a growing bank of Single Point Ladders for CCSS K-8 standards.
