Supplemental Writing Curriculum Resource Review

Friday, December 17, 2021

PVSchools is beginning a supplemental writing curriculum resource review in order to identify quality, standards-aligned writing resources that can be used within our schools to support the primary K-12 English Language Arts (ELA) curriculum. Supplemental writing resources provide explicit instruction on composition, including engaging students in prewriting, writing, and revising strategies that support state standards for ELA. 

A committee of teachers, administrators, and parents, each selected by the Paradise Valley Education Association, Paradise Valley Principals, and United Parent Council will review newly proposed curriculum materials, make curriculum materials available for 60-days of public review and input, and recommend a curated list of writing resources that schools, departments, or the District may use as supplemental programs or materials. We believe this process will assist schools in selecting supplemental resources, and it will allow our District to provide implementation support. 

The next committee meeting is Monday, January 10, 2022, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m.

Community Review of Materials will take place from January 14 through April 22, 2022.
