MIDDLE SCHOOL READING TEACHERS

Reading Language Arts (RLA) Curriculum
The Office of Literacy has developed a Reading Language Arts (RLA) curriculum designed to support teachers in delivering high quality literacy instruction to the middle grades. This curriculum is designed to work within a departmentalized structure and includes a series of quarterly courses for grades 6-8. Derived from the Illinois State Standards, the Chicago Reading Framework, balanced literacy, and writer’s workshop, this curriculum is designed to motivate middle-school students and challenge them to become effective readers and writers. The courses include classroom activities, lesson pacing, authentic student work, quality book lists, grading support, and suggestions for additional reading.

Reading Language Arts (RLA) Curriculum Professional Development Workshop
The Office of Literacy is offering a professional development workshop to all middle-grades departmentalized English Language Arts teachers from C4MGP Schools. The professional development workshops will lay the foundation for implementing the RLA curriculum. Middle school teachers and Office of Literacy staff will facilitate the workshop. Each participant will receive the materials necessary for the successful implementation of the first course. Ongoing professional development will be provided through the 2008-2009 school year.

Who is required to attend?
