Reading Language Arts

Reading Language Arts banner

In Northside, we follow a balanced literacy framework that includes the explicit and systematic teaching of foundational literacy skills.  The instructional components within our balanced literacy framework promote the gradual release of responsibility from teacher to student.  Our students engage in literacy learning during read alouds of mentor texts, shared and performance reading/writing, mini lessons, small group instruction, and independent reading/writing.

Reading Langauge Arts at Scarborough ES

Our mission is to foster a campus-wide culture of literacy.

Through relevant literacy experiences, we support and empower students to become reflective, responsive, and deeply engaged readers. We strive for our students to become lost in the power of a great book.
