Language Arts Curriculum Resources

The curriculum map is the single-best source to understand the year’s work in the module lessons for each grade level: a detailed view of the scope and sequence of the modules showing module titles, topics, targets, and standards explicitly taught and formally assessed in each module.

EL Education’s grades K–2 comprehensive literacy curriculum is 3 hours per day of content- based literacy:

  • Module lessons (60 minutes of daily instruction): Explicitly teach and formally assess all reading comprehension, writing, speaking and listening, and language standards and strands of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts & Literacy.
  • Labs (60 minutes of daily instruction): Build students’ oral language, content knowledge, and habits of character through inquiry and hands-on exploration. The Labs reinforce literacy skills, content knowledge, and habits of character taught in the module lessons and provide teachers with additional time to document students’ progress toward particular standards.
  • K-2 Reading Foundations Skills Block (60 minutes of daily instruction): Teaches and assesses all reading foundations standards and language standards associated with spelling and letter formation (see the K-2 Reading Foundations Skills Block Scope and Sequence documents).
