Language Arts in Grades K-5

The elementary grades at John Muir School have adopted a reading framework by Lucy Calkins called “Units of Study for Teaching Reading K-5.”  This curriculum is designed to support teacher creativity by:

  • Helping build foundational reading skills and strategies
  • Supporting the teaching of interpretation and synthesis of information in both fiction and non-fiction texts
  • Providing teaching points and mini lessons that support a reading workshop curriculum
The curriculum, along with videos that describe it, are available at:  http://www.heinemann.com/unitsofstudy/reading

Language Arts in Grades 6-8

Upper grades use language arts curriculums which supports students’ critical thinking skills via a multitude of interdisciplinary approaches. The following curriculums are used in grades 6-8 at John Muir:

  • HOLT Elements of Literature
  • Jr Scholastic The Current Events Magazine
  • SCOPE Scholastic Language Arts Magazine
  • Write Source
  • The Daybook of Critical Reading and Writing
