English/Language Arts 6th - 12th Grades
Philosophy of Literacy Instruction
WCSD Literacy instruction is grounded in the Nevada Academic Content Standards. The beliefs and practices underlying the teaching of literacy in WCSD are guided by educational research on best practices in literacy. Students will develop the necessary skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening that are the foundations for creative and purposeful expression in language. Students will engage with high-quality, complex text and participate in writing and discussions anchored in evidence from the text to promote comprehension. Students apply these skills while reading independently and see themselves as readers and writers who persevere in the face of challenging work.
