“We want school to be a place where all students feel empowered—that they have freedom to achieve their highest aspirations. We chose the curriculum because it gives all of our students access to rigor. It engages students in making connections with their personal experiences. Our students see themselves in the literature.
“Hollis is transforming through the use of EL Education. You can see all the growth at the same time: through the community, the growth of students and their data, through the teachers and their learning. It’s a whole continuum of growth.”

"EL was vital to the success we experienced. Using the curriculum changed instruction. No longer did we view standards separately. Instead, [we] were able to see how one built upon the other. The curriculum cycled back. Student voice was heard. The text task and target were all aligned to the instruction. Furthermore, through the use of protocols, the curriculum assisted with classroom management."
