The District continues to address curriculum enhancement in the area of Literacy, including Reading, Writing, and Language Arts. At the elementary level, teachers are moving forward with more focused instruction to improve student reading and reading comprehension skill development. Sudbury’s approach, called Guided Reading, provides time for teachers to meet with small groups of students on a regular basis to address their individual literacy needs. In writing instruction, our elementary schools have adopted Calkin’s Units of Study, a program that focuses on skill development in various writing genres. A framework called Response to Intervention (RTI) has been initiated in our schools by which students are periodically assessed for literacy skills and research-based strategies for improvement are implemented to individuals identified as being in need. Much of the professional development time for teachers at the elementary school level has been committed to this initiative.
