Our school district believes that if we focus on culture, data and performance with a lens on literacy that we will see success.
Increasing the vocabulary of students builds their academic confidence and helps them create grit and perseverance.
The teachers use it in every content area on a regular basis which allows for conversations around cross-curricular instruction.
Once they realized they can use it across content and that it was more about literacy than about a particular content area, they got on board.
