Secondary Resources – Approved Novels
Novels are submitted to the Director of English for approval. The attached spreadsheet (far right hand corner) indicates how teachers have proposed to use a novel and how it is embedded in our curriculum Units. The most important consideration is to plan vertically and horizontally with grade level and school teams to avoid overlap.
A few handy resources follow but many more are attached within our SIS system:
- Balanced Literacy
- ReadingStrategies vs Skills
- Conferencing Questions
- Lexile Framework for Reading
- Summary Frames worksheet
