Scholastic, a trusted leader in education for almost 100 years, is excited to introduce Scholastic Literacy
, a comprehensive curriculum for Grades K–6 built on the best research into how children learn. At Scholastic, we believe that learning should be deeply engaging and authentic—designed to inspire lifelong intellectual curiosity and independent thinking.
Scholastic Literacy is the result of our longstanding partnerships with educators, families, and leading researchers. It utilizes a powerful framework for teaching essential reading and writing skills that students can apply throughout their academic careers and beyond.
Scholastic Literacy is highly customizable, with built-in options for teachers to tailor their lessons to their students’ needs. It offers numerous formal and informal opportunities to monitor students’ learning. Results from these assessments, as well as data from digital solutions, provide teachers with actionable data to inform instruction, identify areas of need for intervention or acceleration, and form small groups.
A powerful framework for teaching and learning is created through:
Unparalleled Access to Authentic and Culturally Relevant Texts:
Scholastic Literacy offers authentic informational and literary texts by real authors with independent reading collections, e-books, read-clouds, mentor texts, and leveled bookrooms. Our unique classroom library reflects students’ interests, challenges, and real-life experiences while helping to foster the social-emotional skills that students will need to thrive in and out of the classroom.
Personalized and Adaptive Instruction Informed by Data:
Interactive digital resources are designed to personalize instruction for foundational reading skills, comprehension, vocabulary, and word study. Educators have access to data for the metrics that matter most to inform and differentiate instruction.
Scholastic Literacy provides families with essential information in English and Spanish that they can use to encourage and support their children’s literacy development.
Let’s work together to ensure that every young Iowan develops the literacy skills and critical thinking they’ll need to be lifelong independent thinkers, readers, and writers.
