Because of the  high rate of student mobility, it is important that you follow the district pacing guides for sight words and word study (phonics) instruction.  


Included in the literacy framework are several options for teaching word study that are highly effective and evidence-based, as per the ESSA guidelines.  Although not exclusive, it is important to make sure that all classroom practices meet the standard for best practice.  


Please note:  The district will not be offering pacing guides for language arts and writing.  Both of these content areas should be taught all year long and integrated into authentic practice tasks.  Teach both frequently and require your students to integrate their newly-learning language skills into all of their writing pieces.
