Language Arts: ReadyGen

This year we will be using the Pearson ReadyGEN reading series. This is an integrated literacy program that accelerates learning for students by presenting modeled reading with authentic text. Lessons include a Close Reading routine where students will learn how to approach complex texts by citing evidence from the text, exploring key ideas and details, and analyzing text structure. 

ReadyGEN uses a generative approach to vocabulary instruction where words are taught in clusters, with a focus on key words that are critical to understanding the text. Throughout the year, students will practice informative, narrative, and opinion writing in response to text.  ReadyGEN also offers interactive anchor texts, digital publishing tools, and game-based online activities to increase student engagement while building literacy skills.
