English Language Arts

Version 3.0

TUSD 3.0 Curriculum is a refinement of prior versions based on feedback, AZ Merit blueprints and Unitary Status Plan requirements.

The Office of Curriculum Development designs, aligns, articulates, and assesses curricula that support academically rigorous learning for all students. In addition, the curricula integrate college and career readiness skills and include culturally relevant practices. Curriculum development is an ongoing process. We will review and revise the curricula regularly to meet the changing demands of our students and community.

Grades K-5

TUSD provides a culturally relevant, literacy based approach to reading and writing at all grade levels. The curricula align with the Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards (AZCCRS) and prepare students for level grade level appropriate assessments. Students, even in the early grades, are focused readers and writers.

Grades 6-12

Students learn best when they are actively engaged with rigorous and relevant lessons that are taught and assessed by highly qualified and caring teachers. The English Language Arts (ELA) curricula are driven by standards-based learning outcomes and measured by aligned assessments that inform instruction. The curricula are designed to explore big ideas, essential questions, and promote enduring understandings. Technology is integrated into the curricula to promote 21st Century skills that help students solve real-life, complex problems.
