What is the guiding ELA curriculum for WUSD?
WUSD relies on the expertise of its teachers to plan, prepare, and execute daily lessons in order to assure students meet their grade level standards by the time they promote to the next grade. Current curriculum that is used to guide teachers includes National Geographic’s Reach and Engage NY. A group of teachers representing each grade level K-12 worked during the 2016 spring semester to create WUSD’s Line of Sight for ELA, which identifies the Mastery Standards at each grade level. These mastery standards will be used throughout the 2016-17 school year in order to develop Units of Study aligned to 21st century learning expectations.
