MyView Literacy Reading & ELA
Savvas's MyView Literacy program will be brand-new to fourth grade this year. MyView moves from teacher-directed to student-centered learning. Every lesson follows the Gradual Release of Responsibility Model with the goal of building independent readers and writers. The unit themes are thought provoking and open-ended. They help students explore different angles of a unifying concept and promote in-depth understanding. 12 full-length literary and informational texts are put in the hands of every child, harnessing the power of authentic texts for literacy and language learning. At the heart of Savvas is the reciprocity between reading and writing. Students write to sources and cite evidence, developing close reading habits. They write in different modes, including Informative, Narrative, and Opinion writing. The writing process guides students with a clear approach. We are excited to get started and see how high our students will soar!
