Literacy: The Keys to Success
These resources help explain the standards (or expectations) for what your child should know and be able to do while reading literature and nonfiction (informational) texts, and then writing about and discussing what he or she has read. Students will use these reading, writing, speaking and listening skills throughout the school day and across content areas. The suggestions for how you can help are examples of ways in which you might support your child’s learning at home. Also included are the links to helpful websites where you can find more information and resources, including videos, about the standards.
